Intro: Shabby Flower Pots
Give new tera cotta pots a time worn look in just minutes, using a few inexpensive tools.
Step 1: What You'll Need
- Silver craft paint
- Tera cotta pots
- Preval Sprayer
- Scrap paper
Step 2: Prepare the Preval Sprayer
Since we’re using watery craft paint, we’re filling the Preval Sprayer jar with 1.5 oz of paint and 1.5 oz of water.
For thicker paints, pour 2 oz. of paint and 1 oz. of water into the jar.
Cap, shake vigorously and attach the spray can.
Step 3: Distress With Paint
Cut a strip of burlap and lay it across the pot.
Spray a generous layer of paint onto the burlap. Remove it to see your pattern, and spray overlapping texture onto the same area if you would like. Otherwise, move on to spray a bare portion of the pot.
When the burlap is soaked through the back, cut a new piece and continue spraying.
Step 4: Plant, Display and Enjoy
These flower pots might look shabby, but they’re definitely chic. Plant your favorite greenery in them to enjoy indoors or out.
