Make an “Aloe you very much” Painted Terracotta Pot:
A terracotta pot makes a great planter for your succulents. It already includes a drainage hole at the bottom and the size is perfect for planting a few different small succulents inside. It’s also super easy to paint!
Step 1: Paint White Base
I used white chalk paint to give it a farmhouse look. But any type of paint works well on terracotta. Paint the planter until you’re satisfied with the finish, then allow it to dry completely.
Step 2: Decorate + Stamp
After your paint is dry, it’s time to start decorating. Use letter stamps and a black stamp pad to add your text to the front of the planter. Just press each letter into the stamp pad, then carefully stamp it onto the pot.
If you make a mistake, just paint over the area with some white paint, allow the paint to dry, and re-stamp the letter.
Step 3: Add Plants
Give your ink time to dry, then plant your succulents in the pot. Start by adding some potting soil to the bottom of the pot, then place the succulents in the soil. Fill in any areas that need extra soil, then add a few rocks on top to improve drainage and dress up the gift.
Succulent Puns for Your Planter
You don’t even have to stop at “aloe you very much”. There are SO MANY succulent puns you can put on your pot. Here are a few to choose from…
- You had me at aloe
- You grow girl
- Aloe from the other side
- I’m a succ—er for you
- Life would succ without you
- Thanks for helping me grow
- Rooting for you
Make a variety of cute gifts for all your friends and family. The possibilities!
