As the colder months approach, bring your empty plant pots indoors for a crafty upgrade
Add a splash of personality to plain terracotta or metal plant pots with easy-to-use decoupage papers. Stick to the floral theme with Dotty Designs Vintage Floral Decoupage and Designer Papers or go for eye-catching colours and patterns with Creativ Decoupage Paper in Happy Colours. We even have handy step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process.
Small terracotta plant pots are so versatile, and you only need a couple to create an effortless set of candle holders that are perfect for the garden patio. Simply flip the flower pot over and attach the saucer right-side-up to the top. Painting the pot and saucer in complementary block colours will really make them pop - try the Debbi Moore Paint Set in lovely chalk-finish pastels.
This fun make isn’t likely to scare anyone off, but it is a perfect project for the transition from summer to autumn. Using a selection of different sized terracotta pots, paint up a friendly scarecrow to sit outside your front door or out in the garden. Just remember to use a sealant like Mod Podge Outdoor Sealer before you paint.
Take any old flower pot and wrap it up in rope for an easy way to add a rustic touch to your garden. Glue the rope around the outside of the pot and then paint on any decorations or patterns that take your fancy. If you choose a striped design like Seagrass Rope in Brown, you could forget the paints and let your rope do the talking.
Why not go for a seaside vibe with this straightforward project? Bold stripes of red and white paint transforms two flower pots stacked on top of one another into a charming lighthouse. Glue a small lantern on top to add the perfect finishing touch, and then stick your make straight back into the garden or put in on display as the centrepiece of a coastal-themed room.
