How to make DIY painted flower pots:
Gather your supplies (terra cotta pot/s, acrylic paint in your favorite colors, paintbrushes, a black paint marker, dishes for the paint)
Begin by drawing the black body of a butterfly on a terra cotta pot with your black paint marker. Don’t forget the head and the antennas! Next, squirt a small amount of paint onto a plate or into a paint dish. Choose whatever colors you like, but keep in mind that you are creating butterfly wings.
Then, dip your thumb into the paint and gently press it around the drawn-on butterfly body to create butterfly wings. You can continuously use the same paint color for one butterfly or mix it up and use other colors.
You can also mix it up and use yellow paint to add bumblebees to your pot. Simply use yellow paint and dip your thumb into the paint and place it on the terra cota pot.
Once the paint has dried, draw on small antennas, wings, and tiny eyes with your black paint marker.
