26 Creative Things to Do With a Terracotta Pot

When it comes to floral arrangements, we’re all for thinking outside the pot (and the flower, for that matter), but sometimes you just have to bring it back to the classics. That’s where these next-level terra cotta pots come in. Throw on some Sinatra, kick back and prepare to spend all your free time painting, Mod Podge-ing and applying fabric until you’ve recreated every one of these clay beauties (or finished your Netflix queue).

1. Gold Triangles: Even if geometry was never your thing, we know you can’t say no to these geometric beauties! (via Miss Renaissance)

2. Dip Dye: Soft pastel colors plus a hint of ombre make these dip-dyed pots the perfect blend of trendy and simple. (via I Spy DIY)

3. Marbled: The best thing about this DIY marbling technique is getting your hands dirty. (via Alana Jones-Mann)

4. Gold Chevron: You’ve probably got the chevron technique down by now, but it never hurts to give it that extra gold oomph. (via Fleur de Sel)

5. Gold Foil Lettering: We love the idea of customizing your flower pots with your own thoughts, quotes and mantras. Plus, you can never go wrong with glitter. (via Nest of Posies)

6. Wave Color Block: This gorgeous design has us dreaming of the ocean. All you need for this one are cool shades of blue and thick rubber bands. (via Wit and Whistle)

7. White Color Block: For this totally chic look, just paint the upper half of the pots white and let the clay do its own thing on the bottom. We love the uneven, hand-painted aspect, but if you don’t, you know where the painter’s tape is! (via Offbeat and Inspired)

8. Pastel Color Block: More color blocking, but this time with muted, warm tones. Is it weird to call a flower pot cozy? (via A Beautiful Mess)

9. Pink Glitter: If you’d rather make a glitzy statement, go for an all-over pink glitter pot. Then pair it with some old-school books for a photo-worthy juxtaposition. (via The Pretty Bee)

10. Gold Leaf: We know the power of well-placed gold leaf, and you can get yours here. (via Brit + Co)

11. Gold Patterned: Let the negative space do the talking with these fab gold creations. (via Delia Creates)

12. Pink and Copper: Switch up your metals to create this lovely copper and pink pot. (via Oh So Pretty)

13. Modern Gold: Holy terra cotta! These statement-making pots have varied designs with a common gold theme to tie them together perfectly. (via The Crafty Woman)

14. Copper Leaf: Now we just have to get our hands on a moon cactus (or perhaps the pillow version)… (via Woods of Bell Trees)

15. Simply Gold: There’s that color blocking again, but this time gold and white look oh-so lovely contrasted with the twine macrame hanger. (via Lovely Indeed)

16. Colorful Macrame: Or you could just stick with a plain white pot and an ultra-colorful hanger. (via Delightfully Tacky)

17. White Lace: You really can’t go wrong with white lace and succulents. (via A Beautiful Mess)

18. Purple Lace: Combine gold leaf and lace-lined techniques for a ridiculously beautiful succulent garden. (via Wedding Chicks)

19. Floral Flower Pots: Use any fabric you can get ahold of to completely customize your pots. We love this flower-on-flower action — it’s like a Canadian tuxedo for plants! (via Emmaline Bride)

21. Neon Color Block: If it isn’t neon, then it shouldn’t be on… these pots! (via Hello Bee)
