Terracotta + Puff Paint



Hello!  SO sorry I have been MIA lately, life has been a little hectic and I have had a stupid cold...  I keep telling myself that I will survive this spring!  Can I get an Amen from the teachers reading this?  This project came about because our kitchen table needed a little sprucing up, and I was needed an easy project while stuck on the couch this weekend.  This project only requires 5 things and costs $10!!!

Terracotta Pot
House Plant {I got mine from Home Depot}
Pencil
Measuring Tape
White Puff Paint



I love this project because you can do any pattern you want.  I was wanting tribal/geometric/fun pattern to make the room feel more summery.  To make my pattern I used a measuring tape and made tick marks every 1/2 inch around the rim of the pot. 


I made another row of tick marks every a half inch below the ones I already made.  Then I connected the dots with diagonal lines. After the first couple rows were finished I applied the puff paint onto the pot.  The only tricky part of this was getting the dots close to the same size. The real reason I decided to work on the pot in sections is because I am a wimp...but the puff paint made my hand cramp when I tried to do too much at the same time! ha


I continued the same process until the pot was covered with puff paint!  




What do you think of my new tray?  That was my lone Lily Pulitzer purchase from the Target craziness.  I wasn't planning on going to Target, because I didn't even want to know if they had anything left at 9am.  Then we ran out of toilet paper.  I HAD to go.  No other option.   

Cheers to it being Wednesday and the weather being back in the 70's.  I don't know if I can handle any more weird looks...Don't these Denver people know that 50 degrees is cold?
