Eventually we all accrue lots of random terracotta or ceramic planters that are faded, boring, and/or mismatched. So, why not dress them up and give them new life? With a little paint, a few puns, and a healthy dose of creativity, it’s easy to do!
Here’s what you need:
Step one: paint
If you want to change the base color of any of your pots, just paint them. You’ll typically need a couple of coats, so have some patience. FYI, paint doesn’t stick very well to ceramic, so maybe save the paint for other pots. We’ll show you what to do with the ceramic pots in a bit.
Step two: decorate
Here you can drip paint down the sides of your planters, draw faces, or write some plant puns! A few of our most succulent plant puns:
- You grow girl
- Say aloe to my little friend
- Let’s talk some dirt
- My life would succ without you
- Please don’t die
- It’s party thyme
- Best buds
Step three: plant and enjoy!
Now, add in some plants and enjoy! You could even use these on your desk to hold pencils, or turn them upside down for a plant stand.
Cheers – happy painting and planting!
