DIY Fall Clay Pot

This is a festive week for us Texas bloggers as we welcome you to our homes for our Fall In Love With Texas Blog Tour.
We have Katie from Let's Add Sprinkles to thank for this gathering of 20+ Texas Bloggers, you will find the complete list of Fall participants at the end of this post.

As for me, I have been creating some DIY Fall projects and fine tuning a few recipes to share with you during this week. 
Today I am making such an easy DIY project and tomorrow I will be opening up my home to share with you how I add a colorful Fall to our neutral decor.

It is my true wish that you will be inspired with what you find here and hopefully discover some fabulous Fall ideas from my Texas friends as well.

We are a little short on Fall color right now, but who's to say that this should stop us from feeling a little Fallish.
We can imagine that we have glorious reds and golds and who's to say we don't, if we take the time to look we might just find a few colors...they arrive a little sneaky here, like a whisper in the wind.

You do know that the Fading of the Summer season is the prettiest season of all, at least to me.

We don't entertain all that much, but when we do I like to send a little something home with our guests.
I think that hand crafting a personalized gift which also has a purpose is perfect way to do just that. 
This DIY Fall Clay pot project has many functions.
It is a great way to let your guests know where they will be seated, it is a festive "take home," to add to a vignette and being a clay container it truly is functional as a planter.

I painted the edge of the clay pot first with metallic acrylic paint and then painted the rest of the clay pot with orange.
I wanted to add more steps, but seriously this is so simple, it seemed silly to-

I sort of tested the project by leaving some of the clay pots natural, which I liked equally as well as the painted. So if you want more of a vibrant orange paint them, but if you are short on time or paint-no worries, the natural earthy clay color is good.

Don't you just love these paint pens? 
Let your creativity be your guide. You can add arrows, dots, or sayings.

I spray painted some pumpkins gold, but you could easily leave them orange or paint them any color that you'd like.
That is one of the things that I like about projects like this, they are simple and you can customize them to your own liking.

  1. Super cute clay pots, I like terra cotta and feeling this need to do something fun with it. Something like this on a larger scale would be neat.

  2. I'm glad you're bringing the fall colours into your home when you can't find them outside. Love the cute clay pot, and such a nice gift for your guests. We have no colour here yet either, except for my burning bush is starting it's slow blaze :) Looking forward to your week of Texas hospitality Jemma!

  4. What a great idea to use as place settings at the table and for a little take-home gift! You could do this at Christmas, too with ornaments set on top instead of pumpkins. Looking forward to seeing how you decorated your beautiful home!

  12. Hello sweetness! I love these clay pots and you can fill them up with just about anything festive! I love the way you painted the rims. Is your weather starting to cool off? I bet your table is going to be set just perfectly. ENJOY!

  13. Your little clay pots are so cute, Jemma. I love the orange color you chose, and the gold pumpkins you spray painted are so pretty. These would be nice to put names of the family at a Thanksgiving table. I like the white pumpkins for Fall, but there's nothing quite like the orange ones sprucing up our homes.

    Happy Autumn days, dear Jemma.

    love, ~Sheri

  16. The cute little gold pumpkin is adorable, and you're right, this project could be customized with different colors and personalized even more using the pens. My penmanship isn't my strong suit though. Thank goodness for stencils :)
