make your day diy

My friend and PNW buddy, Chelsey, has an exciting thing happening tomorrow!  She partnered up with Chelsea Costa from Lovely Indeed to create a fun DIY e-book and it's launching on Monday! Make Your Day is full of tons of super quick and easy DIY projects that you can create at any time of day.  Head to either one of their blogs (here or here) to enter to win a copy of Make Your Day before their giveaways close at 5pm PST today, or you can wait till tomorrow to purchase your own copy, and get 20% off by using the code MYDAYISMADE20.  The best part of Make Your Day is that it not only has instructions on the DIY projects, but they have tons of printables and resources for you to make it as easy as possible to do the projects.
Today I'm sharing a really fast DIY project based on one of the projects in the book (Face Planters, seen below).  I made a zig zag pattern around the top instead!

What You'll Need:
Small terra cotta pot 
White acrylic craft paint
Martha Stewart Opaque Glass Paint 
Pen or pencil

1. Paint your pot white and let dry.

2. Use your pen or pencil to sketch out the zig zag pattern around the top edge of the pot.

3. Let air dry for 30 minutes.  If you'd like to make the paint waterproof and permanent, you'll need to bake it.  Place the pot in a cool oven and heat to 350ºF, then bake for 30 minutes.  

4. Let the pot cool in the oven before removing it.  Let it sit for 72 hours before using, to be safe.  Now you're ready to plant little pretty things in it!
