Learn how to do DIY planters. Yesterday’s summer rain left our porch soiled with the leaves of Allamanda plants. 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 comforting!
I came across the contest held by an India – art blog here and thought of participating in it.
At home, everyone loved the antique finished terracotta planters. So, I decided to give a colorful splash to all the terracotta pots that I had placed on 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.
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 recycled paint bucket planter, I used the leaf imprints method to create a design. This time, I used Bhrami leaves from our garden. You can check the post DIY – Wall art decor using leaf paintings for more details. And, for the rest of the planters, I did a simple design. Unlike empty planters, it’s quite difficult to paint a planter with plants in it.
It took me 4 hours to complete it. It’s worth the time!
It’s been a long time that I’ve taken part in a painting contest besides office work. I feel so happy to be a part of this contest.
