Transfer clay pots to amazing home decor. A few weeks ago I was shopping in Hobby Lobby which is one of my favorite craft stores. I came across these wonderful clay pots that were on sale for $1.00! I grabbed about ten of them, not knowing exactly what I would do with them at the time. So, the first thing I decided to do with a few of the pots is paint them and transfer a print on it. I’m so happy with the outcome. This project is easy!
paint of choice (2 colors)
low grit sand paper
Print to transfer
Here is a great site to find amazing prints to use for free The Graphic Fairy, check it out!

I used white for first color and grey for the second, you can use whatever color you choose.
print out the image you want to use, make sure you print it in reverse and cut it as close to image as possible
cover print with mod podge
position and place print and let dry for 24 hours or use a dryer
after print has dried, wet it and gentley rub until you see the print beneath
after rubbing paper off, take a low grit sand paper and gently sand the entire pot for an aged look
I decorated 3 clay pots and used one for kitchen utensils…doesn’t it look great!
here are all the clay pots…I love them! The other two I will use for planters.
