Decoupaged Patio Terra Cotta Pot

I love flowers of all kinds and love to plant them to have on my patio in the summer. If you do as well, you probably have as many pots as I do, including terra cotta pots. What’s not to love about terra cotta, right? Well, this time around I want something a little softer and prettier, so why not try a decoupaged patio terra cotta pot?

The first thing I’ll do is give my pot a coat of Rust-Oleum Chalked spray paint in Linen White.

I’ll use three coats, allowing plenty of time to dry between each one. While I’m waiting on the paint to dry I’ll go ahead and work on the image I’m going to decoupage.

I’ll be using a lavender graphic that I’ll be printing. The process I’ll be using is printing on tissue paper and it’s much easier than it sounds, promise!! This is the tutorial I first used.

Take a piece of printer paper and wrap your single piece of tissue paper around it, folding and taping the edges on the back. I used double sided tape to adhere the tissue paper to the copy paper and it worked perfectly. Now simply run it through your printer and your image will print on the tissue paper.

I use a blade to cut the image from my tissue paper and then cut the lavender pieces apart.

Next, use Mod Podge to apply the tissue paper images to the pot. Once applied, I put a light layer of Mod Podge on top, being careful not to tear the paper.

You can easily leave the image black and it adds a beautiful touch, but I’ll be adding a little lavender colored paint to the flowers.

After the paint is completely dry, add a coat of Mod Podge and allow to dry completely. Since the pot will stay outside on the patio, I decide to add a top coat of Rust-Oleum Matte spray. Now all that’s left to do is add dirt and flowers and the decoupaged patio terra cotta pot will be all done!
