Buffalo Print Flower Pots
One of the patterns that are currently popular with the Farmhouse look is the buffalo print. I saw an idea on Pinterest and decided to do my version of a buffalo print on a flower pot. I have this particular print sprinkled all over my house. I have decorated my house with an eclectic style due to getting my furniture and decorations from everywhere. I choose furniture that I can alter by painting or adding to it. I choose many of my decorations by making them or finding them at the flea market or shopping around garage sales. The search is part of the fun in the decorating.
List of supplies
Clay flower pots, you can also paint on plastic pots.
Clay Pot sealer
Acrylic paints, white and black
Paintbrushes ( in the sizes you want the grid work)
The first thing you are going to do is seal your clay flower pots inside and out.
Tape under the edge to paint black paint around the rim of the pot. I also paint the top portion of the inside of the pot, so it looks more finished.
Once the paint is dry, basecoat the bottom half of the pot in white paint.
When the paint is dry, put your painters tap around the pot to mark off where you are going to paint black paint. I just freehanded my lines, but you may not want your lines a little messy.
Once you are done painting, and the paint is dry, seal the outside of the pot to protect the paint.
Two of the pots I hot glued together to create height. The pots are pretty small.
The larger pot is on my kitchen table with a flower arrangement in it.
A Center Piece for a Table or Side Table
This next piece I created was very inexpensive. I got the idea watching some YouTube videos. This was a fast and easy decoration.
2 Farm Fresh signs from the Dollar Store
Paint sticks from Walmart
Flowers from Walmart
Craft sticks from Walmart
The stuffed pumpkins I made several years ago and had on hand
I painted the paint sticks black. Then I hot glued the sticks to the backside of the pumpkins to create a basket. I also hot glued the craft sticks to the bottom of the basket to give it stability. I did not even seal the wood after painting. You can put your choice of flowers and leave out the pumpkins if you like. Enjoy!
Here is some of the rest of the stuff I decorated the house with. I hope you enjoy it. I look forward to your comments and feedback. Suggestions for future projects etc.
