D.I.Y. Painted clay pots

Painted Clay Pots

Around a month ago I crocheted a few cacti and put them in clay pots. I wanted to be able to have cacti without the hassle and I just love them!! But the ugly clay pots were bothering me so I decided to paint them…


They were pretty boring….so I got out my paints!!

100_3218First I washed and dried all my pots….

100_3219Then I got out my supplies, remember to cover your work space.

100_3221Base coat them, I needed a second coat to get a smooth finish!

100_3224I decided on dots….I thought that would look cute and whimsical!!

100_3225Now they sit on my piano reminding me of warmer days!! Hope you find the time to create and add a little color into your life, by creating your own Painted Clay Pots!!


About Black Raven Creations

I love to create things and am one of those people who has to keep my hands busy. I have always been this way. If I am not "creating" in some form I tend to get depressed and blue. I spent many hours at my Grandmother's knees learning how to china paint, knit, and crochet. My home is now filled with items I have created thanks to my Grandmother!! She was a great and loving teacher and I was an eager learner. I have not only filled my house with my creations, but I have filled other family members homes as well. My oldest son told me recently "no more", he will not accept another painting, quilt, or wall hanging of any sort...his walls are filled!! Since my friends and families homes are filled, I have acquired a large pile of finished products... I was encouraged for years to open an Etsy shop, So I finally did!! In my shop you will find my creations using a wide range of textiles all created and made by my hands lovingly taught by my Grandmothers hands. All items are 100% handmade!! There are paintings, hand-stitched items, knitted and crocheted items, sewn items and many more. I hope you enjoy investigating my shop and if you have any questions just ask me. I am looking foward to running my shop and getting to meet new and exciting people. I hope to be able to service this community for many years.
