DIY Rustic Succulent Pots

Adding a few plants to the room would be a great way to start brightening up a space, but I definitely don’t have a green thumb, so I chose some easy care succulents. And since I wanted the display to be nice and bright, I found some plain terra cotta pots, and I turned them into a trio of colorful, rustic succulent pots.

I love the color aqua because it reminds me of the sea and warm weather and everything nice! So, I painted the pots with a rough coat of aqua-colored acrylic paint. Since I wanted them to have a rustic vibe, I used a foam brush and made sure that the terra cotta color was still visible in certain places. Then, I brushed some white paint over the aqua layer — just enough to tone it down a little bit.
