The steps are so simple, no need to really go into too much detail. You'll need a succulent of your choice, a terracotta pot, paint of your choice, some thin painters tape or washi taped worked great for me, and then just a bit of your own creativity.
I just taped off some simple triangles and painted them white.
When the paint had dried for a few minutes I removed the tape.
I then taped off a few more triangles to add a touch of coral.
And voila...a simple, unique, heartfelt gift for my son's wonderful teacher!
I added a little handwritten note that I just folded around some flower wire and adhered it with double stick tape. I personally like how the character of handwriting the note adds to the very structured shapes of the pot.
