Looking for a quick and easy way to paint some pots that make a bold statement? Decorate terra cotta pots to mimic strawberries, perfect for summer and full of vibrant color. So easy, anyone can do it! I can see using very small versions of these for Valentine’s for giving gifts, such as chocolate covered strawberries or cellophane bags of dried fruit.
I originally made this project for my monthly column “Crafty” in the Chicago Tribune. If you get the Tribune, my column appears once a month on Sunday near Puzzle Island.
I used small pots, but imagine how fun giant strawberry pots would look on your deck or balcony! I promise these are easy. Just paint, dot on the “achenes” (outer seeds) and you’re done!
