I am loving these clay pot suggestions on different ways to decorate them. This one is so fast and simple and is so adorable with all the bright stripes painted down the pots. This truly reminds me of spring. It is amazing what a little paint can do to cheer this otherwise plain pot. I think I may play around and paint some of the stripes around the pot along with the stripes going down and give 2 different looks. Now the hardest thing is going to figure out what plants to put in them. if you ever wanted to spruce up the look of your old clay pots then take a look at this tutorial.

Aww, these look so cute! I can finally upgrade from the lame pots my plants came in.
