Zest up those terracotta pots!

Find & Fix it Friday

It was my momma’s birthday recently and she is a fellow plant lover (let’s face it she rubbed off on me- tee hee). So it only seemed fitting to get her a gorgeous house plant, but when it came to the pot I wanted to make it a little more heartfelt and unique. Time to zest up some garden pots!! You can find decent sized terracotta pots at the dollar store, score!! Now we can make quite a few fun designs without breaking the bank….makes for a great christmas gift-hint hint!

Suplies:

  • terracotta pot & saucer
  • paint brushes, paint
  • glue gun
  • rope
  • whatever you want to zest!!
