DIY White & Copper Terracotta Flower Pot

DIY White and Copper Terracotta Plant Pot

After a year of consistently watering an orchid that appeared to be gone forever, persistence paid off and it finally bloomed! I was over the moon. A long line of orchids came before this one and this is the first to survive! In celebration, I decided to paint the pot.

I decided to go with the same combination of white and copper as used with the crystal decoration boxes I made earlier this year. Now they match nicely!

This project is simple to do!

Supplies

A Terracotta Pot
White acrylic paint $1.99
Copper metallic paint $2.15
Paint brushes
Old newspaper/magazine
A plastic container (to pour the paint into)

1. Start with a clean surface on the pot. Then apply a coat of the white paint to the entire exterior of the pot. Leave to dry for an hour.

2. Apply a second coat of the white acrylic paint, and give it another hour to dry.

3. Place masking tape around the rim of the pot, leaving about a 1cm-2cm of space above.

4. Apply a layer of the copper paint. It doesn’t take to terracotta as easily as it does with wood, but with persistence and after applying another coat it will look even. Leave to dry for an hour.

5. Apply the second coat of the copper paint.
