DIY: Painted Pots

We recently visited the flower market in downtown Los Angeles and hit the jackpot with some gorgeous succulents and flowers. Naturally, we needed somewhere to house all these great finds, so we picked up some classic terra cotta pots. They were looking a little, well, plain, so we thought we’d spruce them up a bit with a quick-and-easy DIY. The materials are pretty reasonably priced, and, fortunately, you don’t need much more than a little paint and some creativity.

Bonus: If you’re looking for a last-minute gift for Mother’s Day, this DIY makes a great one for moms!

What to do:
1. Tape off your pot in any shapes you choose, wherever you want on the pot. (Triangles are a good beginner shape.)
