Updating clay pots with stencil and paint

This post may contain affiliate links

Today, I’m going to show you how easy it is to update clay pots with a dandelion stencil and paint. Over the years I have received some of the cutest pots from the kids but unfortunately the paint has faded or is completely gone so I decided to give them some updates!  If you don’t have any clay pots you can find them at the 99 cent store!

Paint the pot, it took 2 coats for complete coverage, let dry completely.

Tape the stencil onto the pot.  Using a stiff brush, dip the brush into the paint, dab any of the excess paint onto a paper plate. Next, lightly tap the stencil with your paint brush and remove until the pattern is completely covered with paint.  After it has dried I covered the entire pot with a sealer.Stencil clay pots
