Would you believe that these beautiful flower pots were made with decorative designs from paper napkins?! We’ll show you how to create your own one-of-a-kind pots that are sure to be the standout of your indoor garden.
- Terracotta flower pots
- White acrylic paint
- Decorative paper napkins
- Mod Podge (we used Matte finish)
- Clay Pot Sealer (optional)
Using a paintbrush, create an aged effect on flower pots by lightly brushing with white paint, ensuring terracotta still shows through paint. Repeat with additional coats until desired finish is achieved. Let dry completely.
Cut decorative design from paper napkins using scissors. Separate layers and keep top layer with design. Set aside.
Brush a thin layer of Mod Podge to exterior of flower pot where napkin will be applied. Let dry slightly, about 1-2 minutes, until Mod Podge is sticky to the touch. Carefully position napkin design on flower pot and lightly press with finger until smooth. Trim off any excess napkin with scissors or damp paintbrush. Brush another thin layer of Mod Podge, this time on top of napkin design. Let dry completely.
Brush a second thin layer of Mod Podge over napkin design. Let dry completely.
If you plan to use these flower pots for real plants, spray the entire surface, including exterior, with Clay Pot Sealer. Let dry completely.
ORANGE & FIELD TIP: If you find that the napkin is sticking to your finger when you apply it to the terracotta pot, wrap your finger in a small piece of plastic wrap and try again.
