greenery in painted clay pots

These pots are made by layering geometric shapes with two chalk paint colors. Adding faux greenery makes them on trend and looking fresh.
Step 1

Use stencil tape to tape mask a triangular shape at the bottom of the pot. Press the edges of the tape firmly to the pot.

Step 2

Paint a layer of a French Teal chalky paint inside the masked off area. Add a second coat of paint and remove the tape. Let dry.

Step 3

Repeat Steps 1-2 on the other side of the pot.

Step 4

Repeat Steps 1-2 but this time, use Parchment chalky paint. Overlap the painted areas makes for a more modern look.
TIP: Use a hair dryer to speed up dry time.

Step 5

Cut a piece of floral foam to fit inside the pots.

Step 6

Trim the stem of the greenery and push it into the floral foam. Arrange the leaves so they look natural.

Step 7
Add moss to cover the floral foam and use floral pins to hold in place.
