Chalkboard Terra Cotta Planter


  • One unglazed terracotta flower pot
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Pilot silver marker pen
  • Quick-drying matt spray varnish
  • Fine sanding paper
  • 10/32” paint brush
  • Few sheets of old newspaper to protect the working area
  • Suitable artificial plant



  1. Lightly sand the pot before starting to paint.
  2. Clean the pot with warm soapy water and allow it to dry completely in the sun.
  3. Paint a layer of the black acrylics over the whole pot.  First paint the inside and allow it to dry. Add a second coat if necessary.  Then, paint the outside of the pot, and allow it to dry thoroughly. Paint a second coat, if necessary, to obtain a nice even look.
