Painted Pot Craft Instructions

  1. Paint your terra cotta pot with a few coats of the black paint, and let dry.

  2. Apply a good layer of decoupage along the rim of the pot and coat with glitter.

    Pro Tip: it is easiest to work in sections when applying the glitter so the glue doesn't have time to dry and cause the glitter to flake off

  3. Apply your stencil to the middle of the pot and once again apply a layer of Decou-Page and coat with glitter, then carefully peel your stencil off and allow to dry.

  4. Once everything is dry fill your pot with "gold" and have a party!

What a sweet addition to your St. Patrick's Day decor! I love the gold sparkle on the painted pot - a great craft for all ages.

This is such a cool idea. I have some clover that I want to put in a small pot for an Irish friend for Saint Patrick's Day. I was thinking of wrapping it with green foil paper. But after seeing this, I changed my mind. This is easy, inexpensive and cute.
