At just $1.99 per plant pot, this is one DIY that feels like a no brainer. It’s amazing how a little white paint can totally and completely transform such a simple object. And by playing with different levels of opacity, layering on that paint will allow you to achieve this marbled look for less than the cost of your morning cup of coffee. That, right there, is a win as far as I’m concerned!
Clay herb pots
White acrylic paint
Mix white acrylic paint with a little water in a cup. Paint the top and bottom of the pot white, leaving a thin organic line of the pot exposed in the center.
Paint on more layers of white until desired brightness is achieved. Play with more transparent and more opaque layers of white to give a very organic, cloudy feeling to the texture.
Paint the inside and top rim of the pot white and let dry.
Plant herb of your choice in the pot and enjoy!
