Decopatch Teapot Flowerpots

decopatch teapot flowerpotI was given this book for Christmas and some of the ideas are just too wonderful for words!
Everything AliceIt was this idea for a fabric covered teapot/plant pot that got me thinking …. wondering if I could substitute the fabric for Decopatch paper.

….. And how fortuitous that I have a huge box of brown teapots in the shed already! I used to buy them up at 50p a go at car boots years ago because I wanted to paint them to look like Christmas puddings (but that, as of yet has not happened).
Decopatch TeapotsAnyway they Decopatched a treat and didn’t take that long but the  5/6 layers of clear varnish took a few days to complete.

I am putting them (and all the others I hope to make) aside until Mother’s day when I plan to plant a pansy etc. in them.
