With the addition of a little gold leaf, old terra cotta pots can have a whole new life—and far more pizzazz. We love the contrast between the weathered clay and flash of gold. Pot them up with succulents and you've got yourself a perfect party decoration, wedding favor, or pretty accent for your windowsill.

Watch the video below for our step-by-step instructions.







Don't hesitate to really put some muscle into brushing the gold leaf at the end if you like that distressed look on the gold.  And remember to spray with the sealant if you're planning to use them outside.  Good luck!
