40 Ideas to Dress Up Terra Cotta Flower Pots – DIY Planter Crafts {Saturday Inspiration & Ideas}

I get so excited this time of year as I begin to see the garden sections and nurseries starting to fill with new merchandise for the spring. Even though it’s still a bit early, some refreshing diy projects this time of year never hurt the anticipation of sunshine and warmer weather.

I can never have enough flowers once the spring weather allows – and as I like to have them scattered around everywhere, I can never have enough pots to go along with them. Terra Cotta flower pots are fairly inexpensive, compared to the faux plastic look-a-likes, and even though they are simple and plain there are plenty of ways to spice them up. This weeks Saturday Inspiration and Ideas takes a look at some planter project makeover’s sure to have you rethinking the average clay based ceramics.

  10. Love these ideas! I am dying for Spring, and bought 4 potted plants at the grocery today…now I am going to have to get busy making new pots for them…I hate plastic!

  13. Thank you! One of my favorite things is painting on Terra Cotta! Check out my pin board, Terra Cotta and more…..So many things can be done with these! One tip I give is, put a glaze over the unpainted part of your terra cotta, this makes the terra cotta color even more beautiful!
