Spring has sprung and it’s coming up pansies! Our Celebrations of Home group of bloggers is back the month with ideas for spring! Be sure to see all the spring has sprung ideas at the end of the post!
I love the time worn look of clay pots, don’t you? What do you do when you don’t have any old pots?
Let me show you how to age clay pots…
Easy project and I think you will love the results!
You will need:
- Clay pots
- Embossing Cream (I used Maison Blanche Glacage Natural)
- Hair dryer to speed things up.
- Outdoor paint ( I used Maison Blanche)
Apply the embossing cream in areas to create raised and cracked areas. Dry the embossing cream. Paint with a dry brush lightly dipped in your paint. Dry completely and plant your pansies or other flowers of choice.
I love having a variety of pansies planted in small aged clay pots, I use them to decorate for spring. They last a lot longer than cut flowers and they look great spread around your patio and on the dining table outside. Heck, I’ve used them inside for a centerpiece also!
You can make your own potting table, just like I did. Find the instructions here:

Can you give me more information on the embossing cream? where can I buy it and is it weatherproof?
I LOVE the look of your aged pots! I’ve got to try this! Hugs…Debbie
How fun!!!! I have a super huge clay pot in my basement and I think I will have to try this. I don’t have the same product, but maybe I can think of something. I absolutely MUST make one of your potting benches. I need a new one as the table I was using fell apart. Happy Spring, my friend. xxoo, Barb
Super cute Debbie.
