These dripping paint planters were so much fun to make that I ended up making five of them. Yes, five!! I don’t even have five plants to put in said dripping paint planters.

I guess I’ll have to make a trip to the plant store again then. I ain’t mad about that. Maybe I’ll make five more dripping paint planters just so I have an excuse to buy even more plants.

  • Terra cota planter
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Plastic/paper cup or bowl to mix in

How to make these dripping paint planters:

  1. I started by painting my planters a very light grey color but you can either skip this step or choose your own color. Let the planter dry completely before you move onto the next step.
  2. Pour some Mod Podge into a  plastic/paper cup or bowl. I just completely eye-balled this. I probably used about 1 tablespoon.
  3. Next, taking the color of paint you want to create the dripping effect, pour a little bit into the Mod Podge. You will want enough paint to make sure the color isn’t diluted by the white Mod Podge but not too much to make the mixture runny. Again, I eye-balled this measurement but I would say about 1 teaspoon of paint, adding more if needed.
  4. Mix the paint into the Mod Podge so it becomes one cohesive mixture.
  5. Taking your paint brush, put it into the paint/Mod mixture and then dab that on the top of the planter so the paint runs down it. Continue to do this all the way around the planter.
  6. Let the paint dry completely before you touch or plant into your new planter.
