Kids Craft Friday: Pour Paint Pots


You may want to head outside for this week’s craft…it could get messy! We’re using acrylic paint to decorate pots!


  • Planting pots
  • Acrylic paint – however many colors you want!
  • Masking or paint tape



  • Cover hole on the bottom of the pot with tape
  • Place upside down on a bottle or something to hold it above the table
  • Take acrylic paint and pour along the edge of the top so the paint can drip down the sides
  • You can tilt the pot around to get the paint to drip more, or use a popsicle stick to push it over
  • Let the paint dry
  • Remove tape that covers the hole


*You can paint the entire pot white or black before doing the drip paint

*If you plan to use the pot outdoors, you’ll want to spray it with a sealent
