For this project, I took a plain ordinary terra cotta pot:
I painted the base of the pot with a sanded paint. You can do this in one of two ways, you can buy the paint with the sand already in it, or you can add some fine sand to acrylic paint. I have done it both ways, and both ways work just fine :)
Then I took some texture paste (if you have never used texture paste you don't know the fun you are in for) and spread a small layer of the paste around the top ring of the pot.
Since it was spring when I made these pots, I filled them with some super cute over-sized flowers from my local craft store. It was a fun addition to my front porch this spring. Since it is fall, I am thinking I am going to use the pots and put some fall decor in them. I will certainly share pics if I do! :)
