Well hello there! It’s time for our monthly décorating challenge! Last month the challenge was decorating with baskets. In case you missed it, here’s what I shared:
Now we have a new challenge!
Here is my clay pot before:
I found three of them at a yard sale for 25¢ a piece ages ago and they’ve just been sitting in my garage ever since.
With the Summer rolling in I’ve been enjoying adding a few beachy elements to my spaces lately. It started with that basket and then I created this Shell wreath, and this fun shell garland for my fireplace. So why not keep the theme going?
This could not have been easier!
I started by painting my pot. I used latex paint as a base.
I had a ton of scallop shells left over from my other shell projects. They came in a pretty good sized bag from TJ Maxx. I thought they’d be perfect to add around the top.
I just hot glued them in place:
I had this faux stone spray paint left over from my Thrifty Fall Centerpiece, and thought it would look like sand!
It kinda does a little.
That’s it! I didn’t seal it or anything since I was adding a faux plant, but I don’t think you have to anyway.
This little $20 dollar yard sale table usually lives over by my back sliding glass doors, but I had the yard sale hutch I shared on Tuesday set up there to take pictures, so this little guy ended up in my dining room to get his picture taken. This is actually a sewing machine table.
That’s my little cutie in preschool. He’ll be starting 8th grade in the Fall, sniff sniff.
Just one more fun way to transform a plain old terra cotta pot!
