Linda's How-Do-I Series? How To Make A Painted and Stenciled Terracotta Pot Decoration

Since I had just finished my Linda's Blog post on the painted and stenciled terracotta pots I had made I thought you might enjoy a step-by-step "How-to" on how to make one of your own.

My instructions on how to make painted and stenciled terracotta pots of your own are shown below.

How To Make A Painted and Stenciled Terracotta Pot Decoration



Supplies Needed

4"-5" Round Terracotta Pot (with or without a tray)
Patio Paint - 1 Bottle
Varnish - 1 Small Can
Provo Craft First Impressions Rub-On Stencils - 1 Each For The Border and Picture
Popsicle Sticks
Brush - 1
Potpourri - 1 Pkg

Instructions

1. Wipe the terracotta pot with a moist paper towel and then let dry.

2. Brush paint the terracotta pot with the Patio Paint inside and out and let dry. Do the same with the terracotta tray if you are using one.

3. Apply a second coat of the Patio Paint to the inside and outside of the terracotta pot and let dry.  Do the same with the terracotta tray if you are using one.

4.  Select the stencil you are going to use for the border at the top of the terracotta pot.  Cut enough of the stencil border to cover the top of the terracotta pot.

5.  Using the popsicle stick gently rub the stencil on to the top of the terracotta pot.

6.  Select the stencil you are going to use for the picture in the center of the pot.    Using the popsicle stick gently rub the stencil onto the center of the pot.

7.  When you are happy with the design and the stencils are adhered to the pot gently brush the entire pot with the varnish.  Do the same with the terracotta tray if you are using one.

8.  When the terracotta pot is completely dry add seasonal potpourri.

9.  Congratulations - You're Done! Now make as many of the painted and stenciled terracotta pots as you would like to decorate around your house.
