Floral Fairy Clay Pot

By:

This Floral Fairy Clay Pot from Heidi Borchers is the perfect way to celebrate spring. Make one of these clay pot crafts using paper doilies and paint. You can create a vintage look for this delightful garden craft by using a dry brush technique. Decorate each pot differently using unique embellishments like butterflies, fairies, and jewelry pieces. This is a fanciful way to upcycle those baubles you haven't used. Place a few of these precious pots in your garden to create a magical landscape.

  8. With this dry brush technique, you should still see some of the black paint showing from behind. Continue to paint entire clay pot with this dry brush technique. Spray seal with Aleene’s Spray Gloss Sealer.
