I decided to try a little mod podge treatment on an old terra cotta pot the other day and it turned out pretty cute! I took a few pictures along the way. It is sooo easy to do this transfer, don't be surprised if you see all of my pots outside turn into pots like this!
1st I painted the pot with a Martha Stewart paint in "Tailors Chalk". I did this very quickly and not to neatly but I thought it didn't really matter, a plant will be in it, right?

Then I found a french graphic I liked on the "Graphics Fairy" blog and used a matte finish Mod Podge to adhere it to the pot
I let it dry overnight and then used a little water to peel off the paper and voila it turned out great!
I really like it even with some sand and a candle in it.
Try this technique it is really easy and looks great!

Well, yesterday I got inspired to do a few 4th of July decorations in our family room. Of course I didn't want to spend any money on this because it will probably be up for a week or so. So I went outside and cut some flowers from the backyard and then went to my scrap booking drawer and found some blue and red scrapbook paper along with some ribbon. I went into the kitchen and pulled out some pitchers, I just happen to have a red one and had to decide which white one I wanted to use and then through it all together. It is definitely festive and I hope it will help make the holiday a fun one!
Happy Independence Day 2012!!
