Beautiful plant pots are great, especially if it’s for indoor plants. So in this post, I will show you an easy and fun way to makeover terra cotta pots.

Terra cotta pots are beauty as its own. But some of us have preferred different aesthetics; thus, we purchased ceramic pots to make planters a well-curated and Instagrammable (if that concerns you), LOL! But really, having beautiful pots add beauty to your collections.

But one way to upgrade your terra cotta pots is by adding decorative patterns. You can paint it or use a decoupage method. We are using the technique of the latter.

In this thrift store DIY project, we will show you how we transform the terra cotta pots that we bought from a thrift store (0.25 cents each).

We used paper napkins and the prints from disposable table cloth to cover the pots, and the result was amazing!

On a side note, if I am at a party and see a decorative paper napkin, I won’t be using it. Instead, I’ll keep it and use it for crafting. LOL.. same with the tablecloth. Seriously, they are too pretty to be thrown!

You’ll need:

Terra cotta pots
Mod Podge glue
Paper napkin or prints from a disposable table cloth
White paint

Method 1:
