Painted Terra Cotta Bits and Pieces

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.
