Lucky Pot of Gold Painted Pot

DIY Painted Pot Project Instructions

  1. Paint your terra cotta pot with a few coats of the black paint, and let dry.

  2. Apply a good layer of decoupage along the rim of the pot and coat with glitter.

    Tip: it is easiest to work in sections when applying the glitter so the glue doesn't have time to dry and cause the glitter to flake off

  3. Apply your stencil to the middle of the pot and once again apply a layer of Decou-Page and coat with glitter, then carefully peel your stencil off and allow to dry.

  4. Once everything is dry fill your pot with "gold" and have a party!

This is so cute! I know it is geared toward St. Patrick's Day, but I think you could easily switch up the design and use this as a cute party centerpiece! Love :)

This painted lucky pot of gold made from a flower pot is so cute and very easy to decorate. What a great centerpiece for St. Patrick's Day. or a desk display. I love the gold glitter but I think I will use green glitter or paint for the shamrock. I would love to find a little leprechaun to put in the pot with a green ivy to give it a special touch. I love this idea. Great video and tutorial.

#NationalCraftMonth2017 I hate glitter . . . it shows up in the strangest places months after using it! Cute idea, but I would use stamps or paints.

Painted pots are cute any time of the year, but the glitter sure says 'party!'. #NationalCraftMonth2017

This is really cute and the possibilities are endless.

#NationalCraftMonth2017 Another adorable craft for us! A good one for my granddaughter (8) who loves to paint, and also loves glitter!

Cute! #NationalCraftMonth2017

Perfect project for today. I think if I made it I would use green glitter for the clover. #NationalCraftMonth2017
