Jiffy 3: Pots

Pastel Color Acrylic Paints

Paint Brush


Acrylic Paint

White Glitter

White Glitter Glaze

Easter Grass

Step 1

The 2 main pieces for this project are these 3″ Jiffy Seed starter pots and the paint. They are perfect for this project and not as expensive or breakable as the terra cotta pots but you can use either. To make things easier I have included my affiliate link for the pots I used

Paint Colors

And these are the exact colors you will need. They are as follows:

Apple Barrel “Kiwi”

Apple Barrel “Lavender Sachet”

Folk Art “Patina”

Apple Barrel “Cameo Pink”

Folk Art Metallic “Ice Blue”

Apple Barrel “Apricot”

Apple Barrel “Pale Daffodil”

Painting the Pots

This part is easy – just a little tedious but how fun if you are working with children because this is something you can do with them! Might get a little messy but hey, what craft isnt for kids!

The paint absorbs quickly into the cardboard material of these pots so you want to make sure you give them enough drying time so you can avoid tearing in later steps.

Once they are dry you can paint the inside white. I love this chalk paint because the chalky-ness of the white goes on much quick and seems to dry much quicker.

I painted all inside the pot and on the top rim as well as the outside rim so I could have my glitter sprinkle over the edge.

For this project I used the thicker, chunkier glitter.

The Glaze –

I wanted to age and give a little character to the outside of the rest of the pot so I brushed a light coat of extreme glitter glaze all over the pots.

This really sets off the pots and give them SO MUCH UNIQUENESS. I just think this step is so crucial.

The Handles

Here is the video on how you can add handle to them. These make them rustic and unique but are optional.

They are so cute accented with these DIY carrots. See how I put them together HERE.

And how stinkin’ adorable if you are going to use them as an accent on your Easter table. ALSO – They would make a perfect May Day Basket. Hope you can try them!

Crafting your own spring DIY pots is a fantastic way to add a personal touch to your home decor and embrace the beauty of the season. As we’ve discussed, with some creativity and basic materials, you can easily create beautiful and unique pots that will spruce up your space and bring a touch of nature indoors.

Remember, the possibilities are endless and the process is both fun and rewarding. So why not give it a try and see what you can create? As Anne Lamott once said, “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.” So unplug, get your hands dirty, and let your imagination run wild. Happy crafting!
