3 Reveal Your Design
4 Decorating Your Pot
  • Step 1. Making a Pattern

    Grab your terracotta pot and paint tape and make criss-cross patterns around your pot, tearing the tape each time you get to the edge. You can make any pattern you like. Make sure you smooth the tape down so the paint won’t get under it.

  • Step 2. Painting Your Pot

    Now it’s time to paint your pot! Choose any colour you like, your favourite colour or a nice bright one and paint the uncovered sections of your pot. When it dries you can give it another coat to make it even brighter.

  • Step 3. Reveal Your Design

    When your paint is dry, peel off the tape to reveal your awesome design!

  • Step 4. Decorating Your Pot

    Now it’s time to add some sparkle to your pot. You can stick anything on your pot to make it look nice. Use craft glue to stick your decorations on.

    Now you have a beautiful decorative garden pot! All you need to do now is pick your favourite plant and pot it!
