Over the years I’ve potted A LOT of flowers and herbs. And as a result, I’ve amassed quite an impressive collection of broken bits and pieces of terra cotta pots. I keep them around because I put one in the bottom of each newly potted plant for good luck. May sound weird but it’s just what I do.
I was looking at my bowl full of terra cotta shards the other day and felt a little tug of inspiration.
I cleaned them well with soap and water and once they dried I lightly sanded them.
I painted them with black India ink. I’m sure you could use acrylic paint too.
Then I sprayed them with a little bit of polyurethane spray.
I'm loving spring and I hope you are too.
