Hey there! It’s Dee from Meatloaf and Melodrama, and I’m back at PinkWhen this month with an easy way to bring a little bit of green into your home. Now that Valentine’s Day is over, I’m in the mood to start decorating for spring, and I thought adding a few plants to the room would be a great way to start. But, I definitely don’t have a green thumb, so I chose some easy care succulents. And since I wanted the display to be nice and bright, I found some plain terra cotta pots, and I turned them into a trio of colorful, rustic succulent pots.
Rustic Succulent Pots
I found these ordinary terra cotta pots in the craft store, but they were definitely in need of some color and style!
I love the color aqua because it reminds me of the sea and warm weather and everything nice! So, I painted the pots with a rough coat of aqua-colored acrylic paint. Since I wanted them to have a rustic vibe, I used a foam brush and made sure that the terra cotta color was still visible in certain places. Then, I brushed some white paint over the aqua layer — just enough to tone it down a little bit.
I liked the color, but I thought that the pots needed a little something extra. So, I wrapped some twine around the pots and tied the ends with little bows.
Then, I added some potting soil, planted the succulents, and that’s all it took for this little decorating project to be complete!
I love how the rustic succulent pots turned out, and the aqua adds a nice pop of color to the room. And If you don’t want to use real plants, you can always buy faux succulents and use those instead.
