How to make a flower pot for Valentine’s Day

I was inspired to make this flower pot for Valentine’s Day based on the famous conversation Candy Hearts. For me, nothing says Valentine’s Day like a treat with affectionate phrases on it!

For this simple craft, all you need is a selection of colorful paints and Cricut decals. If you don’t have a Cricut, you can just buy store-bought heart-shaped stickers. We are going to use a technique similar to my Boho flower pots that had an inverted stencil.

Tips for painting flower pots

Seal it. Use this flowerpot sealer if you want to add a plant. It helps to prevent moisture from ruining the paint. I like to spray both the inside and the outside of the jar. (I notice a difference in quality when I’m not using it, but I choose not to use it on edible plants as a precaution.)
Use Interior/Exterior Paint. For terracotta pots, always choose acrylic paints suitable for outdoor use and on several surfaces.

Paint several layers. Depending on the thickness of the paint, I recommend doing 2 to 3 coats of paint for the best coverage. You can follow the manufacturer’s instructions for drying times or speed up the process with a heat gun or a hair dryer.
