Hi there everyone. Glad you stopped over today. Looking for a little Spring inspiration for garden pots.
Good because today I am sharing
Ideas for decorating and Dressing up Terracotta pots,
with paint, mod podge and embellishments have been just a few of my past projects.
Thought I would share some of my own and some I have gathered from the net for inspiration for you.
So many ways you can dress up those plain ole pots…let me show you a few.
Mod podge is always fun, take this old recipe book for instance
Painted and stenciled Terra cotta pot
Another version, painted and stenciled terra cotta pot
Chalk painted terra cotta planters for a teachers gift
Here is my latest painted and stenciled pot.
I planted some happy pansies in it for the Fall season.
Now how about a few from the internet that I found to inspire.
Painted & Personalized Flower Pot via Personalization Mall
Stenciled House Number Planters via Martha Stewart
Chalkboard Flowerpots via Fiskars
Gem Covered Pots via Busy Hands Busy Minds
Broken Ceramic Tile Mosaic Pots via Hobby Craft
If you are not a regular here, I sure would love to see you back again.
For more Spring and Garden inspiration you can check out my personal archives
visit my DIY GALLERY.
And if you love easy, tasty recipes…I have plenty of those.
I am also a huge Dollar tree fan and do lots of fun crafts per season.

I love all of these wonderful pots! I used to mosaic pots quite often when I was creating mosaics. I think my favorite one of all of the ones you showed was your aqua blue ones that were stenciled.
Penny- I’m going to try doing mosaic pots with a girls camp group in two weeks. I’ve never done it before. I”ve read up on it on-line, but since you’ve done it do you have any tips for me? Thanks.
I have never done mosaic pots, these are just examples of some. I would google how to:)
Such great ideas, Debbie! I love your latest “Laugh, Believe” stenciled pot. Thanks for sharing … I just might have to create one for myself.
Pam @ diy Design Fanatic
I love all of your terra cotta pot projects Debbie. I especially love the ones you painted blue with ASCP. So pretty!
Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions
I love your newest pot, Debbie! The color is great and I love the stenciling around the rim.
omg I love all these ideas!! Totally cute xox
Great ideas Debbie, thanks for sharing.
Love the chalkboard ones especially Debbie.
I love your newest one! What a great gift those would make, great idea!
I like them all but the Gen Covered pot would be perfect for my guestroom bedside table.. perfect timing for seeing this as I am in the final stages of decor in that room- thank goodness and Finally..
thanks for sharing all these creative ideas with us.
See why we love keeping in touch? Because you just inspired me to scap up all of my discarded terracotta and paint them white with some embellishments and use them in my living room.Thank you…thank you!
Great ideas Debbie!!!
Great ideas Debbie…love your pots!!….Getting some great ideas for Christmas!!…thanks so much!
Shari @ Turnstyle Vogue
I love what you did to yours – the others are great too. The possibilities are endless, aren’t they?! Have a great day today!
I like the chalkboard finish. I would start with the inscription, “please don’t die”, then I would eventually change it to “RIP” or “Mom’s homegrown potpourri”!
Great ideas…perfect for holiday gifts!
oh my gosh I love all the pots, they are amazing!!! I missed blogging so much but after all my bad luck I still came back, I will try one more time, wish me luck with my new blog please, I have started from the ground up, its backed up and protected to ying yang and back so I should have no troubles,,I hope!1 hope you are well and enjoying this beautiful Fall day, ( well its beautiful here),
I love the ones for the herbs the best.
Right now, I’m just trying to keep my stupid mums alive in my pots. UGH!! They weren’t looking so swell as it is, and then I was sick for most of a week and totally neglected them. Can we say pathetic? Cute pots will not help.
I just love the terra cotta pots Debbie! Gorgeous mosaic tile pots too, that’s on my list of things to attempt. I’ve missed your blog so much, I still can’t seem to get it on my blogroll for some incredibly annoying reason:(
We’re moved into our Florida home…finally!
Lots of great options for clay pots! Most of ours are put away for the winter, but I’ll have to remember these when spring comes!
These are all sooo cute. Love the house number one.
You have a knack of knowing what we all like…that’s why your blog is a favorite. :))
Love your cute header…that magnificent rooster is adorable. I’ve been trying to find some cuties like that but every where I go, it says COPYRIGHT…bummer. (they are all sooo picky….:)))
fun and creative idea. The purple ones stole my heart but the chalkboard paint ones come in a close second. xo
Debbie they’re all so pretty!! I love them all but my fav is your latest one!

Love the blackboard painted flower pots! The hemp around the top is perfect!!
Great ideas Debbie! I absolutely love your stenciled one think you have definitely cornered the market on creative terrra cotta pot uses! 🙂
Some great inspiration there. I want to go out and redo my ugly metal pots right now. My burlap bows keeps falling off of them.

Well this was timely..I have that big wedding in 4 weeks and I was just looking at my patio plants, thinking I need to spruce up my plain clay pots…I am thinking my be the stencil? Thanks Debbie!
It’s amazing all the different ways to decorate terra cotta pots. I love your stenciled ones.
I like all your ideas best! I think it’s the color 😉 LOL!!

These are super-pretty pots, Debbie. I like the decoupaged ones, and I like your blue ones with the stenciled words on the rim. Also a neat idea to put the house number on a big pot out front–clever. So nice to hear from you over at my blog, and I’m glad you enjoyed my antique ribbon lampshade. I’m happy with it, and it looks vintage in our bedroom, which is exactly what I wanted!
I got over here from your more recent post about mod-podging clay pots…I have to say that your painted and stenciled ones are just hard to beat. Also I love the chalkboard ones. Thanks for all these great ideas!
I’m going to have to check my garden pots tomorrow and see if I have any Terracotta ones. I think most of mine are plastic..Love that purple one that is sitting on a small chest, next to the pot that has been personalized “The Brown Family.” Did you buy it like that, or do this yourself? I went to that site but didn’t find any garden pots like yours.
i’m a pottery exporterin Vietnam and i think it’s very nice
I like getting your post in the mornings so I can read it during my morning coffee break. I love your pot ideas. I haven’t even touched my plants yet and Sunday is the first day of spring!!!
Thanks Carolyn for the feedback:)
