Simple Pots with a Touch of Gold

Sometimes, the simplest things can be given a new life with just a few minutes of effort.  Take these classic terracotta flower pots, for instance.  Linda of Burlap and Blue came up with a way to take them from humble to downright stunning.


For this project, Linda started by selecting some fun, summery paint colors.  After painting her clay flower pots, she applied a bit of decoupage glue in a random swipe onto each pot.  She pressed gold leafing onto those swipes, and after giving the glue a little time to dry, she pulled away the leafing to reveal a really cool swipe of gold on each pot!  Isn’t that amazing?
