Summer is almost over but I wanted to share with you this adorable idea I came up with for your backyard entertaining! I know when I was raising my boys, when we weren’t camping, my backyard was filled with neighborhood kids swimming. Barbecues played a big part in feeding the masses…haha. I even remember the watermelon ‘food fights’. Ah, wonderful memories.
I want to share a cute idea I had to make add to your picnic or entertaining table. This is an easy, and inexpensive craft, and you can make it in minutes with just a few materials.
- Terra cotta pot (You can get these at a dollar store too)
- Red and Green Paint (I used Rustoleum)
- Black Perm. Marker
This is what I started out with…a little terra cotta pot.
Tip: If you are using a used pot, you need to clean with bleach and water, rinse, and let sit in the sun to completely dry through the pot.
Now if you follow my blog, you know before I add a bright color, that I sprayed with White first. This is to make the final color, red, POP !
After that I covered the rim and painted the rest red…..after the red dried, I painted the rim green with acrylic paint.
