Patriotic Flower Pot

Celebrate the red, white, and blue with the Patriotic Flower Pot! Paint a plain terracotta pot with vibrant stripes and stars, then add a bouquet of red, white, and blue flowers or greenery for a pop of color. You can also add some decorative accents like ribbons, burlap, or mini American flags to give it a more rustic or patriotic touch. This adorable flower pot is perfect for your front porch, patio, or even as a gift for a fellow patriot!

How to Make a Patriotic Flower Pot

clay pot
painters tape
acrylic paint & brushes

Using white as the base coat, paint the whole pot. It takes about three thin coats of paint to get good coverage. Let it dry really well.

Using the painters tape, create stripes. Since I wanted my pot to have a distressed look, I wasn’t too concerned about perfectly straight lines because I would be sanding it later.

Paint between the pieces of tape using the red paint. A few coats will also be needed during this step to get good coverage. Let dry and remove tape.

Paint the rim of the pot using blue paint. Let dry and distress with sandpaper.

Plant some flowers in the pot for a cute, little patriotic piece. I decided to add some polka dots to the red and blue stripes using a paint pen just to give it a little something extra!
