Easy Peasy Terracotta Pot Craft

Happy Hump Day, y'all!

Here's a quick-n-easy craft to get me back in the swing of blogging! I recently purchased an aloe vera plant to keep around the house and I wanted to spiffy up its planter home. It will eventually be displayed on a rad bar car I'm refinishing.

In addition to the plant, I purchased a small terracotta pot, white spray paint, blue painter's tape and Martha Stewart's metallic gold acrylic paint. I went to Pinterest for my inspiration:

Step one: Spray paint the pot. After it dries, add a second coat -- I didn't hold my spray paint far enough away and the paint dripped :-( I will probably fix this down the road.

After the white paint dries. Apply the blue painter's tape to make whatever design you wish. Here's what I did:

Apply at least two coats of the gold acrylic paint by hand. Once the paint is dry, remove the tape and voilá:

This will definitely be part of a grouping of other planters. Here's the design I want to try next:

Oh, and I'm also making this night stand for our room!
