Late last year I was asked to remix my color block terracotta pot project for the April 2013 issue of Better Homes and Gardens. So, I painted a bunch of pots and sent them off to BHG with instructions to make them. I just got my copy of the magazine in the mail!
The steps to make these pots are similar to those in my color block pot tutorial. The main difference is that instead of using painter’s tape to create a straight edge for the paint, I stretched a large rubber band diagonally around each pot to paint along. That way the pots look as if they’ve been dipped in paint. The full instructions are in the April issue of Better Homes and Gardens, and BHG also made a sweet video tutorial showing how to make these pots. You can check that out here.
This photo of the planted pots was taken by King Au for Better Homes & Gardens.
Below are a few process photos I snapped while painting. The original plan was to create pots in varying sizes and shades of blue, but in the end there wasn’t room for all of them.
