I'll be honest, I'm not a huge fan of terracotta pots. They always seem so earthy to me, which is not necessarily a palette that I love. However, we have a super easy DIY to transform a classic terracotta planter into something a bit more modern and chic! You only need four supplies, and chances are, you already have a few of them lying around the house. You can make multiple at once for a cute mix-and-match indoor garden like shown above.

Here's how...
1. Place stickers in a pattern however you'd like on the pot.
2. Spray a coat of primer to help your paint adhere to the terra cotta (the paint may run if you skip this step!). Let dry for 10 minutes.
3. Spray with spray paint. Let dry 20 minutes.
4. Peel off stickers and voila!
