Striped Painted Flowerpots



    Add a cheerful face to plain terra-cotta flowerpots by dressing them in bold stripes. Terra-cotta flowerpots are a staple of container gardening. But their plain face keeps them in the background most of the time. If you'd like to turn them into works worthy of a pedestal, try this simple paint motif. The broad strips and bright contrast are reminiscent of awnings and garden parties.
