I have a goal this spring and summer. If you are a regular reader of my blog, then you know about my goal. I want to put more effort into making the outside of my house pretty.
I am starting small with these cute little rope-wrapped (say that 10 times fast!) and painted terra cotta planters for our outdoor table centerpiece.
Aren't they pretty?! (And yes, those are fake Ikea plants in them...for now.) I plan to plant some real flowers in them soon!
Here's how I did it:
1. I started out with some terra cotta planters from Wal-Mart. Random Fact: Terra cotta is Italian for "baked earth". I found that out when I had to Google how to spell terra cotta... :)
2. Starting at the top, I began hot gluing my rope down to the pot. I continued to do this around the pot all the way to the bottom.
3. I snipped off the rope and secured it with hot glue.
4. Using left over latex paint from my front door and a standard paint brush, I added a touch of blue to the base of this pot.
This is one of those easy and inexpensive projects that adds a touch of texture and interest to the table. Now, I'm hoping this will motivate me to get going on the rest of the deck! :)
Have a great day!
