Have you ever looked back at the pictures and images you’ve saved on Pinterest lately? Every now and then I do just that, and I’m always so intrigued to see the patterns that tend to show themselves. Lately, I’ve picked up on a subconscious love for things like neutral interior design, outfits punctuated by graphic tees, and lots of linen tabletop texture. I’m also apparently very into the idea of hand-etched pottery!
So, while brainstorming new craft ideas with my editor at Oriental Trading, I decided to include an experimental DIY that I’ve been wanting to test out for ages: a reverse etched painting technique to add pattern to a plain pot.
The good news is that the project managed to come alive just how I had pictured it, and the even better news is that, truly, anyone can do! Visit Oriental Trading now to see my tutorial for DIY Hand-Etched Mini Succulent Pots, and then tell me what type of design you would etch into your own pot. Would you go with a mudcloth-inspired pattern like I chose? Or maybe something a little more free-flowing and intricate? Do tell in the comments below!
My favorite houseplant is a succulent and these little pots are a wonderful size. Has to keep the plant shapes small and neat. A confession: I HAD a large round pot planted with different succulents. One day last month, I tossed the whole unattractive and leggy bunch. Thanks for the photos with display ideas.
I’m glad to hear you’re a fan of succulents, too! I can’t seem to have enough of them in our home. Thanks for the comment!!
