How to decorate a plant pot with Colorantic chalk based paint?



One of my neighbours had this flowerpot on her balcony. It was cracked and misshapen. I imagine that a few years ago, it would have been a magnificent item, but that was no longer the case. No one wanted this pot anymore except me, who could see its full potential.

There’s only one rule for sprucing up an old plant pot and it’s: Have fun! And that I did with this little project. Bonus: it only took me a few hours to complete.

Here are the steps to decorate any plant pot. 

List of Products Used



First, I applied some plaster to repair the structure of the pot. Then a little sanding all over the newly applied plaster and the rest of the pot was necessary. Importantly, the plaster must be spread with rubber gloves. We waited several minutes and let everything dry.


    Steps to Follow

    Secondly, we got to town with any colours that you have to hand. In this case, I used Colorantic Cotton Ball chalk based paint and I added some leftover chalk based paint colours that I had on hand.


    In the last step, I added a protection coat with natural beeswax.


    Finishing Touches


    Finally, all those who have seen this pot in person, really like the final product. 


    In Conclusion


    From smallest pot to your largest one, have fun rejuvenating your decor as you see fit. A little paint on your flowerpots can completely change the design of a room. Plus, it’s a fun, simple, and easy project to do!

    Who am I by the way: I am a stay at home mom to two beautiful children, a 4 year old little girl and a 7 year old big boy. They have been the center of my life since their birth. I am a former hairdresser who still loves to cut hair! I am a hypersensitive, humanist,  who is always ready to help others. Decoration, clothing and hair are areas that have always attracted me. Everything related to creation makes me vibrate and makes me forget my anxieties for a moment. What helps me get through the storms in my head are running, praying, and painting furniture. I love to transform! I find a lot of stuff in the garbage and I imagine them with a new look and that gives me a feeling of lightness. I would like to add hours to my days to paint more. Sometimes I paint at night to advance my work and play with my children during the day. During my long sleepless nights I imagine, among other things, how I will transform the furniture that is in my garage. I am passionionate! Saving the planet is also on my priority list. Restoring, repainting and reusing gives me a sense of accomplishment or relieves me of guilt. Here is who I am!
