paint poured clay pots with greenery

These bright and creative large floral displays are the perfect backdrop accent for your patio party.
Step 1

Cover your workspace with a thick layer of newspaper. Set a wire rack on the newspaper and place your clay pot upside-down on the rack.

Step 2

Put on disposable gloves and pour about 1" of each color into a disposable cup, layering each color. Do not stir the paint.

Step 3

Pour the layered paint from your cup over the pot until it is completely covered. If you run out of the paint, simply add more. Let dry 24 hours for best results.
TIP: These beautiful pots are made for indoor use. If you set them outside for an event, remember to move them back inside.

Step 4

Once the pot is dry, cut floral foam to fill the pot. Use hot glue as needed to secure the foam.

Step 5

Cover the floral foam with moss.

Step 6
Push greenery leaves into the moss-covered foam inside your pot. Add hot glue to secure.
TIP: To add interest, spray paint some of the leaves with a high gloss green paint. Make sure they are completely dry prior to arranging in your pot.
