Great for kids and adults alike, this Chalkboard Style Terra Cotta Planter is a great craft for the summertime!  Simply paint a terra cotta planter with black paint and let your little ones create their very own flower pot!  Crafts like this are great for crafters of all ages!  This also makes a great gift idea for Teacher Appreciation, Mother's Day, and so much more!

Chalkboard Terra Cotta Planter

Materials:

  • 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

 

Instructions:

  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.
