Using chalk paint on terracotta pots has never been easier! Learn how to make these beautiful Chalkboard Painted Pots with Marvy Uchida. Using their fabulous Easy Chalkboard Marker, you can have a chalkboard surface in no time at all. Paint the rim of the pot white for contrast. After you've conditioned the chalkboard surface (which is a must!), use the lovely Bistro Chalk Markers to create vivid designs. Best of all, you can switch out the designs whenever you feel like it. All you need is a bit of water to erase. Since water does erase the design, this project is best suited for indoor planters. Have so much fun decorating these clay pots!

Materials List

  • Terra Cotta Pot
  • Easy Chalkboard Marker
  • Bistro Chalk Markers, a variety of colors
  • Acrylic Paint, white
  • Foam Paint Brush
  • Plain White Chalk
  • Paper Towels

Instructions for Chalkboard Painted Pots:

  1. Use the Easy Chalkboard Marker to paint the bottom half of the pot.

  2. Paint the top ring around the pot with the white acrylic paint. Allow to dry.

  3. Take the plain white chalk and color all over the black chalkboard paint.

  4. Wipe off the chalk with the paper towel. Do not use water.*

  5. Using the Bistro Chalk Markers, draw a design all over the bottom half of the pot. This could be a repeated pattern or even words.

  6. If you make a mistake with the Bistro Chalk Markers, you can erase it with just a tiny bit of water on a cotton swab.

  7. The Bistro Chalk Markers can be erased and you can change your design whenever you’d like.

Please note

*By coating the chalkboard paint with chalk first that is dry wiped away, you are conditioning the chalkboard. Once the chalkboard is conditioned, the Bistro Chalk Markers can be erased.
