Today I’m sharing a quick and easy idea for DIY Moss Covered Clay Pots.

You can do so much with a simple clay pot. They can easily steal the show with a little paint and greenery, they become the life of the centerpiece.

I’m joining the Craft Lightening bloggers today for this fast and easy project.

To create a rustic centerpiece for my farmhouse table, I used faux greenery, white flowers and three clay pots. This fast and simple idea is easy to create with spray paint, craft paint and Chalk Couture transfers and chalkology chalk paste. I am including affiliate links to the products used for this project.

Supplies Needed For Moss Covered Clay Pots:

Spray paint clay pots add moss

I sprayed the clay pots with one light coat of white spray paint. I wanted some of the orange of the pot to be visible. In other words, not  perfect spray coverage. After the spray paint dried, I used a paper towel to place the Folk Art Forest Moss craft paint randomly around the pot.

Use the Chalk Couture Bee Happy transfer to create the graphics on the pots. I created this video on Facebook to show you how to use Chalk Couture. It’s easy and fast. I trimmed the transfers and placed them on the pots. I chose black chalk paste and love the way it pops against the white. I included the photo directions below:

After filling the clay pots with greenery, I placed one of them in a chicken wire birdcage. I found it at Michael’s, on sale!

    1. You make it look so simple, Debbie. I’ll only do container gardening til we move so this will fit in nicely. Thanks.
