Decorated Terracotta Pot

Have fun decorating a terracotta pot with paint and Sharpie pens. This makes a cute little pot or home for a small toy. It would make a great homemade Mothers Day gift. If using as a plant pot, it’s probably best to put another pot inside rather than planting directly into the pot, to avoid the decoration getting too wet when watering the plant.

What You Need

  • Terracotta pot
  • Acrylic paint
  • Sharpies (permanent pens)

Decorating Terracotta Pots with Kids

  • Paint the terracotta pot with a base layer of paint (we chose white).

  • When the paint is dry, decorate the pot with Sharpies (permanent marker pens). We also added some glitter glue as a later on top and stuck on some sequins.
