Terra Cotta Address Planters

You still have a couple of days to link up to the Weekend Wind Up! 

Over the weekend we had different guest Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday! 

We were hosting it up! 

But the front entryway has not been spruced up for spring yet, so I needed 
something simple and cute to greet guests as they came in.
I have seen terra cotta pots done a number of ways, but after 
much consideration I came up with this for the front stoop.


Update: The tulips are blooming! 🙂 


It was pretty easy, and you only need a few things to make your own! 


Terra Cotta Plants (I needed 3)
Acrylic Paint
Stencil Brush
Stencils ( I cut mine on my Cricut)
Scotch tape
Scissors
Twine

1. First cut out your stencils or have your stencils ready to go! 
Make tape rolls out of the scotch tape and put them on the back of the stencil. 
Make sure to get the little areas that will be difficult to keep down on a rounded surface!


2. Adhere the stencil to your pot. 
Make sure to rub it down flat after you have placed it on. 
Rounded surfaces can be tricky! 


3.  Use your acrylic paint and stencil brush to CAREFULLY 
stencil the number onto the pot. 
After you have stenciled the whole number,
 wait about 4-5 minutes to take off the stencil. 
You want to make sure it doesn’t run! 


4.  Once they are dry, you may embellish them up as much as you want. 
I hot glued twine to the top for a little something special. 
Then, plant your pretties in them and enjoy! 




Happy Crafting!

    How cute. I think putting the house numbers on them is such a good idea. Fun!
    I got distracted by your Pinterest boards too and I almost forgot to comment. I'm now following your pins too. 🙂
