DIY – COLORFUL TERRACOTTA PLANTERS

Yesterday’s summer rain has left our porch soiled with the leaves of Allamanda plant. Its absolute happiness to see my colorful terracotta planters refreshed in rain.

Today is Day 17 of #21dayslockdown. The increasing COVID – 19 status freaks me out… The deeper, I think about the daily wagers, homeless people, and stray animals; the more, I’m stressed out! We have made sure to help people around and to feed the cats in our streets.

So, what do I do during the day?

I end up my day painting something in and around our home. That’s very much comforting!

I came across the contest held by India – art blog here and thought of participating in it.

, easy DIY terracotta planters

At home, everyone loved the antique finished terracotta planters. So, I’ve decided to give a colorful splash for all the terracotta planters that I had placed at the staircase adjoining the porch. I had already decorated our porch with two simple wall mural arts here and here.  Leaving out the yellow, grey color is the only left-over color that I have got at the moment.

Here’s how to give a colorful finish for the terracotta planters

I’ve cleaned up all the planters and have applied the base coat with grey color. I’ve allowed it to dry for a while. Then, I used some chalk paint colors and acrylic color to add some design.

For the recyled paint bucket planter, I used leaf imprints method to create a design. This time, I used Bhrami leaves from our garden. You can check the post DIY – Wall art using leaf imprints for more details. And, for rest of planters, I did a simple design.  Unlike empty planter, it’s quite difficult to paint the planter with plants in it.

It took me 4 hours to complete it. It’s worth the time!
