Chalkboard Plant Pots

Have you guys bought yourselves some chalkboard paint yet? It is so much fun to use!

I saw some chalkboard planter pots in a Ballard Designs catalog once, and I thought I could easily re-create them for WAY less! So I went down to the handy dandy Home Depot, and bought some small terra cotta planter pots, as well as the little saucers for them to sit on. They cost about $1 each. Then I whipped out my chalkboard spray paint, and gave each piece two coats. Once they are dry, they are ready for a plant or a seed, or whatever floats your boat. Then you can label them with chalk and it makes for a cute windowsill addition.


  1. Very cute! I saw some like this a while back that someone made into a teachers gift. I am planning on making some for my boys' teachers next week!

  2. Love this idea! I see we have lots in making things beautiful, lots of kiddos that keep us busy and I used to live in Northern Ca. close to Chico...nice to meet you!


  3. So cute!!

    I am so sorry - I am having technical difficulties with this new linky. I got the sizes figured out, but since you linked up at the smaller size your picture is not showing up clearly, can you reenter your link again. I am SO sorry!
