HOW TO MAKE EASY DOLLAR TREE STAMPED TERRACOTTA POTS

Start by painting the terracotta pots with white chalk paint using a dry brush technique. If you are not familiar with this, it’s basically starting with a dry brush and using a very tiny amount of paint.

Pour a little paint on the cover of the paint cap or on a paper plate, then lightly dab your paintbrush into the paint. You then “off-load”, or wipe off some of the paint.

No fancy tools are needed here…just use an index card to brush some of the paint off.

Paint the terracotta pot with very light brush strokes, to give it a time-worn look. You want some of the terracotta to show through. It really does give it a nice vintage look.

The great thing about terracotta is that it dries really fast, especially with a dry brush technique. But, if you want to stamp immediately, you can always use a heat gun to speed it up.

Now it’s time to stamp these pretty pots.

Decide which stamp you want to use, and test the placement on the pot to make sure it will fit. You can use either an ink pad or paint, for this next step.

I used inexpensive black Dollar Tree paint first and it worked, but it was a little messy. The ink pad was much neater and easier to work with, but it’s totally up to you. Just cover the stamp with ink, or paint. and carefully place it on the terra cotta pot.

Push down lightly so you get a nice transfer.

Don’t you love these garden-themed stamps? They will be perfect for spring or summer plantings.
