Take a basic terra cotta pot and transform it into an adorable and useful gift — with chalkboard paint! Make them for your own home or give as a gift; we made these for my daughter’s end of year teacher gifts.
Simply adding a few coats of chalkboard paint (we got ours from Shinn’s Paint) to any terra cotta pot and easily identify homegrown kitchen herbs or write a special note to the receiver. Regardless of the destination, in just a few steps you can easily create a useful gift that can be repurposed for years to come.
We applied two coats. Make sure to allow an hour or two of drying time before adding the second coat.
Let dry overnight before writing on with chalk.
Get creative and personalize it with a message or keep it simple and label it. The possibilities are endless!
