DIY Boho Patterned Pots

The Fastest, Cutest DIY Project I Have Done.

Ooooh, I really like this one. It is a little boho patterned, and at the same time, it has a super clean look. Plus it is super fast and easy DIY project.

I’m usually lazy, and the garden is muddy (we live in the rainforest), so it means when I cook I kind of hesitate to go to the garden and pick the herb I need.p

I wanted to have the most important herbs in my kitchen window, but I was waiting for the perfect idea. I wanted the pots to stand out of all the green and colors from outside, and this white patterned pot does exactly that.

This little DIY project is perfect for kids as well. You can occupy them on a rainy afternoon for sure.

What you’re gonna need:

– chalk paint

– brush

– sharpie

– mini or small pot


1. First clean the pots with alcohol to make sure it’s free of grease, dust and any residue. No sanding is needed for the terra-cotta pots.


2. Paint, let it dry and if you want to do another coat of paint. Let it dry again.


3. Draw your design with Sharpie pen. Let it dry.


My tips:

-I used a pencil to draw my little design first, and then I filled it with the Sharpie pen.

-I used a clear spray to add a shiny finish and to protect the paint, but for the boho chalk-matt look it’s really not necessary.


That’s it. You are done. Congratulation you did it!

Extra tip: Green onions are the most accessible food scrap to regrow. Just take the leftover green onion roots, drop them in a glass with enough water to cover them, and move the onions around, so the roots are pointing down. Make sure you change the water out once every couple of days. Just in a couple of days, you’ll have a brand new set of green onions. If you are like me and top your food with green onions a lot, this is a pretty simple way to ensure you always have some around.

If you like upcycling and budget-friendly projects, you want to take a look at this blue painted pots as well. They will give an instant cute look to your garden or front porch.

    Any type of paint will do?

    • Andrea

      Hi Michael, I used Wawerly chalk paint from Walmart, because I wanted the matt look. That worked great and didn’t chipped at all. I would guess if you have wall paint at home that should work too, but again I have no experience with that.
      I hope yours turns out great!
