Learn how to make and paint this fun confetti painted tiered planter from standard terra cotta pots. Get all sizes of terra cotta pots at Old Time Pottery. Grab three sizes that work well together and get started on this super easy project for your outdoor décor this summer.
For this project you will need:
- Three sizes of terra cotta pots and saucers
- Patio paint in a variety of colors (this paint is formulated for terra cotta)
- Pencil (yep a pencil is what we will use for those great dots)
Dip the eraser end of your pencil into the paint and dot onto you pot randomly as shown. Clean eraser with a cloth between colors.
Each pot should get more dots toward the top and getting few towards the bottom. Allow your paint to dry completely before continuing.
Add dirt about ¾ of the way up in the bottom (or largest) pot and set the saucer for your next pot onto the packed dirt.
Add your pot then fill in with dirt around the edge of the pot.
Repeat until you have three tiers (or as many as you desire).
Add in plants and your confetti painted tiered planter is ready for display.
These tiered planters are so easy to make yourself. Grab a cart full of terra cotta pots at Old Time Pottery and assemble them at home. Don’t like the dot paint treatment? Come up with a paint scheme to put your own spin on this project. Will you add stripes? Solid colors? No paint at all? Let your imagination run wild.
