Summer Celebration: Pretty Little DIY Flower Pots

Summer is almost here and honestly, I couldn’t possibly be more excited about it! I love everything about Summer (except for the bugs, not a big fan of those!)! Everything looks so lush and colourful. Those long days, warm temperatures and sunny skies make spending every moment possible outdoors absolutely irresistible!

And, because I know I’m not alone, I’m thrilled to be kicking off this Summer with some very talented bloggy friends! So my friends, grab your iced coffee, kick back and enjoy a ton of Summer inspiration with our Summer Celebration blog hop!

Last Summer, we worked hard to transform our courtyard deck and let me tell you, it really was the perfect space to enjoy our Summer in the mountains. And then we moved, of course. Figures! Thankfully, our new home has a lovely porch (in need of a makeover if you ask me) and the biggest backyard ever (again, needing some TLC). I’m not exactly sure which of these outdoor spaces we’ll get around to working on this Summer, but I do know it will involve a ton of pretty flowers, which is why I’m so happy to be sharing these lovely DIY Flower Pots today!

Officially my first project of the Summer, these pretty little flower pots are the perfect way to dress up an space for Summer!

Though I knew instantly that I wanted to decorate some lovely flower pots, and I had a zillion ideas floating around in my head, I couldn’t actually decide which one I wanted to make, so I decided to try a few! I started with some inexpensive terracotta pots that I picked up from the hardware store for $2.50 each and had all of them totally transformed in no time at all!

The first, and easiest of the three was this Chalkboard Paint Flower Pot, which was made by simply spraying a couple of coats of chalkboard spray paint over the entire pot. After letting it set overnight, I did “season” it by rubbing the entire thing with chalk and then wiping it all off.

That lovely little mint pot was pretty darn easy to make too! After slapping on a quick coat of my favorite Country Chic Chalk Paint in “refreshed”, I used the back of a stenciling brush (you could also use a pencil eraser) dipped in white paint to add those pretty polka dots.

The third flower pot took a bit more work, but it’s also my absolute fave of the three. I started by raiding my fabric stash for my most favorite swoonworthy fabrics. I was so head-over-heels in love with these ones that I even shared them on Insta last week!

These ones were perfect not only because of their sweet vintage look, but because they were already cut into smallish strips and squares that I could easily use to create a patchwork quilt look.

After painting the top rim with white chalk paint, I added a quick coat of Easy Tack Spray to the base of the pot to help the fabric stick. You could also use Mod Podge for this part if you’d like. Once I had the strips and squares placed just where I wanted them, I added a thick coat of Mod Podge in matte finish over top of it all.

  1. So cute, Kristi!! The possibilities are endless with those clay pots and I love how different they all are. I think the mint one is my fav 😉

  2. I love the flower pots on the ladder. I just went to a small vintage shop and saw a small ladder and passed it up, but I think I may have to go back and get it. I thnk it would look great at the front door.

    1. Thanks Erlene! Yes, definitely go back to get it! Ours hasn’t found a place in our home yet, but only because there are so many ways to use it that I just can’t decide which I love most 😉

  3. Those are precious. I love how they are all simple and quick but also unique in their own way for anyone’s style. I just recently bought some chalkboard spray paint and can’t wait to use it. Chalkboard paint is just so much fun, but I have actually never used the spray kind. I am pretty sure it will be much simpler than trying to paint it on and seeing brush marks which tends to drive my OCD a little crazy at times. Hope you are having a great week and thanks for sharing so many neat summer ideas with this amazing group of bloggers.

    1. Awwww, you have totally made my day with you sweet comment Bethany! Thank you SO very much! I’m thrilled that you love them! You’re going to love working with the chalkboard spray paint – it’s soooo much easier! Enjoy the rest of your week girl!
