Psst! Are you a DIY-er with a green thumb? If so, we’re not surprised. DIY-ers are super handy. Well, we’ve got a terrific project for you today – how to make gardening pots and planters!
One of the best things about this project is that it is 110% beginner friendly. This is a DIY project that you can do with your kids, if they would like to make a special gift for grandparents or a teacher, or anyone else who is special to them. Most of the projects featured here are ones that a beginner can tackle with great confidence, and get terrific results.
This is also a very budget friendly DIY project to try. Most DIY terra cotta pots can be done for $5 or even less than that. Some who make terra cotta pots, like to do a bunch of them all at the same time, so their front porch is coordinated, or they have lots of pots to put their flowers or fresh herbs in. You’ll also be pleased to know that most of these projects will easily “weather” being either outdoors or indoors – and they’ll still look great. The fabric covered pots you can have as outdoor pots if you use decoupage glue that is meant for outdoor use (you can find this at most craft stores, just read the label).
DIY-ing pots and planters is a lovely way to brighten everyone’s day. You can easily customize pots to your home decor or personality. Its also so simple to change them once again, as the terra cotta pots you’ve DIY-ed can be worked on once again most of the time. So this is a terrific project we highly recommend for you.
So let’s get started! Happy DIY-ing!
