Transferring images onto Terra Cotta has been around for a few years but I’ve just recently fallen head over heels for Terra Cotta, so this is my first try!
This little project uses my Aged Terra Cotta flower pots and adds an image onto the front!
You’ll need a graphic -I got mine from the Graphics Fairy! She’s got an amazing website with free printable graphics and most with words even have a mirror image print option! (so your words don’t look backwards )
Cut out your graphic close to the print lines & coat the printed side of the graphic with Mod Podge…
Stick the image onto your pot (mine was already DIY Aged-but you could paint yours in soft white). Press down really well.
I let it dry overnight because I read that’s what I should do! Next, wet the image well using a paper towel or spray bottle of water or just run it under a drizzling faucet for a moment…you can see it starts peeling back…Take the pads of your fingers and rub back and forth until the paper kinda balls up and comes off. If you rub a bit of your image off it’s ok since these are meant to look old!
You can spray with a sealer if you want to!
I’m thinking these wouldn’t do well outdoors but tuck a houseplant inside the pot and it would make a sweet little gift!
Have a blooming good day my friends!
