Victorian Terra Cotta Pots

Victorian Terra Cotta PotsBuy some terra cotta flowerpots with smooth sides and spray them inside and out with a coat of varnish. Use white glue to glue Victorian cutouts onto them, pictures from magazines or flower catalogues, whatever will go with your gift recipient’s décor or interests. With a sponge or crumbled up newspaper, use acrylic craft paints to sponge gold metallic paint on the pot. After that layer has dried, you may sponge another color on, if you desire. When this has dried, spray the pot outside with spray varnish and let dry completely. Using a fine sandpaper, lightly sand the surface. Spray on another coat of varnish. These pots may be filled with potpourri, bath salts and brushes, homemade cookies or candies, or may be used as planters for herbs or ivy.
