A video is sometimes so much easier to follow! I thought a quick video would be great in this case so just watch the instructions below.
How to make these flower pot decoration ideas:
Start by spray painting your clay pots and saucers with the Testors Craft aerosol paints. I painted both the outside as well as most of the inside for a finished look. Allow these to dry completely before continuing. Then break out your acrylic paint to add some accents and really turn these cute pots into a ladybug and a bee!
Painting a Ladybug on a Clay Pot
We will start with the ladybug. Use a white round sponge brush to add the white portion of the eyes. Then use a paintbrush to start adding the black accent down the middle as well as all the way around the bottom. Be sure to paint all the way around the bottom with the black line to give your pot a finished appearance. Then use a smaller round sponge brush to add the dots on the ladybug. Again be sure to go all the way around the pot.
Once the white portion of the eyes is dry, you can add the black portion with a small round sponge brush. Then allow your entire clay pot to dry before using. Pot decoration ideas like these are so easy and oh so cute y’all!
Paint a Bee on a Clay Pot
Next, we will move onto more ideas for flower pot decorations. Our next clay pot is bee inspired! Paint both the pot and saucer with the yellow aerosol and allow to dry.
Then, once again, start with the white portion of the eye. This time use a paintbrush to paint on stripes around the body of the pot. The first line should be right under the lip of the pot. The second should be around the bottom. Then go back and split the difference between the two with a third line. Make the lines the width of your paintbrush.
Finally, once the white of the eyes is dry, add a second black dot with a smaller sponge brush. You have just made two of these flower pot decoration ideas in no time at all.
So, get your family and friends together for an amazing Testors Crafternoon making these clay pot decoration ideas. They will love taking home a pot or two for spring! Crafting is so much better when it is done with the ones you love!
You might even think of some more ideas for flower pot decoration to add to this duo. Plus, I will have another great spring craft for your Testors Crafternoon next Wednesday so y’all stay tuned!
I would also love to know which of these clay flower pot decoration ideas that you love best? The bee or the ladybug? For me, I think I love them both equally! Another great thing about these painted pots is that the kids can help paint them as well. So, you can invite the little ones to your Testors Crafternoon as well!
