Two Color Clay Pots

To decorate your clay pots and saucers for this gardening season, here is an idea:


  • two colors latex paint
  • 1 clay pot and saucer
  • 2 paint trays or flat containers with a 2 inch rim around the edge
  • newspaper
  • latex gloves


  1. Lay newspaper on ground and set paint tray on newspaper for easy clean-up.

  3. Pour some of the first color of paint into a paint tray.
  4. Turn the clay pot upside down and dip the rim of the clay pot into paint then turn the clay pot right side up and let paint run down the edge of pot. Let dry.
  5. Next day, pour the second color of paint into paint tray, follow same procedure for this color paint (dipping clay pot rim into paint then let paint run down the edge of clay pot over the first color of paint).
  6. Do clay saucer same way to match.
  7. Let dry before potting your plant in your newly decorated pot and saucer.

You can match room decor with your paint colors plus using left-over paint you may already have. This will help save our environment too.
