Instructions for your terra cotta pot diy
1. Paint the saucer and pots
I painted the saucer with Folk Art Clover paint. It only took one coat of paint, and I let it dry completely.
I painted 4, 2 inch terra cotta flower pots with the clover paint and let them dry completely.
2. paint the Ping Pong Ball
I painted a ping pong ball for the head. I used Folk Art Fresh Cut Grass Paint. I placed a little hot glue on the wax paper to hold the ping pong ball while I painted it.
3. Add the Turtle Spots
I used a stencil brush and painted on some spots on the saucer with the Fresh Cut Grass paint.
4. Assemble the clay pot diy turtle
I added hot glue to the top of each of the small clay pots.
I placed the saucer on top of the 4 small clay flower pots.
I hot glued on the ping pong ball and then drew a face on it with a permanent marker.
Isn’t he cute? I love my little terra cotta pot turtle.
I made a couple more for Hometalk. For the bottom one, I used Folk Art Acrylic Paint, and for the middle one, I used Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint.
For now, they’re by my fountain in my home, and I’ll probably put them outside in my garden this summer.
