Fun Ways to Decorate your Plant Pots

Sprucing up your plant pots is an easy way to get creative, giving you the chance to transform ordinary terracotta pots into unique pieces that are customised especially for your home. Here are some of our favourite ideas that are sure to inspire creativity.


Channel the Mediterranean vibe with beautiful mosaic patterns made from either glass or ceramic, gluing them to the pot and finishing with a varnish. Create pretty patterns or simply mix and match different colours for an original and unique look. Why not opt for stylish accessories such as the Mosaic Duck Tape, Papermania Self-Adhesive Mirror Mosaics, or the Craft For Occasions Mirror Rounds to help bring a touch of charm and sophistication to your home.

Geometric Patterns 

Simple and easy to create, geometric patterns are a stylish and modern way to freshen up your plant pots. Think zigzags, stripes and Aztec inspired patterns, painted in contrasting colours for a funky look. Seeking some inspiration? Be sure to check out fun and funky desirables such as our Herringbone Duck Tape, Metallic Gold Pyramid Duck Tape, or the Black and White Diamond Duck Tape! Looking to help keep your painting strokes sleek and sharp? Why not use the Ultratape Masking Tape to ensure your paint stays within your chosen design.

Polka Dots

Colourful polka dots are a quick way to brighten up your plant pots. Large, bright dots add a funky vibe, while smaller dots are perfect for adding some country charm to your pots. You could also go modern with dramatic black and white monochrome. With wicked styles such as the Back To Basics Berry Blush Glitter Dots or ready-to-decorate designs such as the Stick it 3D Foam Dots to choose from, the possibilities really are endless!

Chalk Paint  

Ideal for herb pots, chalk paint allows you to write, draw and doodle on your plant pots, making it a great activity for kids or for those who can’t make up their mind! Write the names of herbs or simply get creative with patterns - if you don’t like it, you can always wipe it off and start again. Looking to add the finishing touches to your design with ease? Be sure to kit your craft collection out with desirables such as the Pack of 6 Chalk Window Markers , Gold Dovecraft Chalk Marker, or this product|18336.

Colour Blocking

Add bold colour blocking for a fresh and modern take on plant pots. Paint the rim of the pot a shade that contrasts the rest, mixing and matching for a fun and vibrant look. You can try bright, complementary colours, soft pastels or even monochrome black and white. Acrylic paints, mixed media paints, and even spray paints are sure to help get the job done.


Metallic paint will transform ordinary plant pots into elegant and luxurious decorative pieces, perfect for your bedroom or living room. Not feeling an all-over design? Metallic accenting with desirable such as the Make Essentials Mini Metallic Bells or the Papermania Capsule Collection Metallic Wooden Alphabet Pack are guaranteed to help your DIY masterpiece shine brightly.
