Handpainted Pots for Plastic Cutlery


I picked up three 4" terra cotta rose pots at the craft store. Rose pots are a bit taller than regular terra cotta pots and are perfect for this craft.

Paint the bottom of the pots tan and paint the top band in yellow with a 1" flat brush.  TIP:  I prefer DecoArt Americana acrylic paints for this project because they have one-coat coverage and the colors matched the JOY Letters perfectly! YEA!

Paint alternating thick (1/4" flat brush) and thin (#6 round brush) stripes in pink, green and blue. Accent with yellow polka dots, created by dipping the end of a paint brush handle in paint.

Spell out the words FORKS, SPOONS and KNIVES with Joy embroidered letters, then glue around the band of each pot.

Just add cutlery and let the PARTY begin! Customize your pots to your patio décor or party theme - the possibilities are endless because a wide variety of JOY letters are available at your local craft store!
