Add a little Spring Bling to plain boring terra cotta pots.
With Spring Fever setting in, I decided I needed a new flower to perk up the place.
I chose a pretty little African Violet that reminds me of my grandma.
Grandma loved African Violets.
In no time at all, armed with a few simple products, I transformed a boring terra cotta pot into
something sparkly and fun. Just what I needed.
To make my Spring Bling Pot you’ll need: (*affiliate links)
- Crystal Sheet (Black)
- 4 1/2″ Terra Cotta Pot
- Black Acrylic Paint and Paint Brush
- Black Damask Tissue
- Mod Podge CS11202 Original 16-Ounce Glue, Gloss Finish*
- Beacon Quick Grip All-Purpose Permanent Adhesive, 2-Ounce*
- Vintage Button
- Start with a 4 1/2″ Terra Cotta Pot painted with black acrylic paint.
- Cut Black Damask tissue paper the width of the lower portion of the pot. Cut the strip into smaller sections. (my sections were 2 3/4″ x 1 1/2″)
- Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to a small section of the pot, add tissue paper and apply another layer of Mod Podge over tissue.
- Continue adding tissue sections until the bottom of the pot is covered.
- Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge over the top of the pot to give it a nice shiny finish.
- Cut a strip from the Black Crystal Sheet to fit around the rim of the pot.
- Glue crystal sheet onto rim of the pot.
- Glue vintage button over seam for added sparkle.
- FYI: I could have used the Weldbond glue shown in the picture above which is a good permanent glue. But, because of the weight of the crystals I decided to use my Quick Grip glue instead.
