Summer Fruit Flower Pots

Creating fruit-inspired painted flower pots can be a delightful and whimsical way to add a pop of color to your indoor or outdoor space.

Clean the terracotta pots to remove any dust or debris. You can lightly sand them if necessary to create a smooth surface for painting.

Use a pencil to lightly sketch the outlines of your chosen fruits onto each pot. You could go for classics like oranges, lemons, limes, watermelons, or get creative with pineapples, strawberries, or kiwis! Consider the size and shape of the pot when planning your designs.

Once you’re happy with your sketches, start painting! Use craft paint to fill in the outlines and add details. You can layer colors to create depth and texture, and don’t forget to let each layer dry before adding another.

Use smaller brushes to add details like seeds, peel textures, or leafy stems to your fruit designs. This is where you can really make your pots come to life!

Display these fruits Flower Pots on your patio or windowsill for a fun and fresh addition to your home decor.
