Hi crafters! Dana Tatar here today sharing how I upcycled a drab terra cotta pot into a pretty planter with ColorBox® Spritzers and Cherry BARC Wood Tape from ARC Crafts. The green leaves and grass and the blooming flowers of Spring have yet to reach my area of the country so I am looking for creative ways to add color to my home. I love the natural look of this colorful wood grain patterned pot, which is sure to outlast the flowers that it contains. Despite my best efforts, I will never have a green thumb!
I cut Cherry BARC Wood Tape into 2-inch pieces, peeled away the parchment backing, and applied the tape to the outside of a terra cotta pot, starting at the bottom edge and working my way to the top. I applied small rectangular pieces of tape to a curved surface, so I had to overlap each section of tape in order to create even stripes around the pot. I off-set the pieces of tape on each row to resemble a brick pattern.
I used a paintbrush to apply Pinkolicious, Grasshopper and Lemon Drop ColorBox® Spritzers to the tape. The dye ink really helped highlight the wood grain pattern of the BARC Tape!
This project was quick and easy to complete in under 30 minutes. I think a planter like this would make a perfect gift for Mother’s Day. This project would also be a great craft for children to create and give to a special teacher.
I’m looking forward to displaying my new planter! Try pairing ColorBox® Spritzers with our most popular coordinating ColorBox® Archival Dye Ink colors on your next project.
