Spice up those dollar store pots with this fun technique using textured paints. This project is quick and easy but makes a huge impact. These DIY Textured Dollar Store Pots are perfect for your Outdoor Decor.
The Dollar Store is honestly full of goodies that just need a little touch of DIY to make them look high end and chic like these DIY Dollar Store Textured Pots.
So I was at my local dollar store and found a pair of plain white Faux Topiary Pots and I thought to myself that it would be a great addition to my Outdoor Space.
Keeping real plants alive in my house is quite the struggle so faux plants is the way to go for me as they are super low maintenance.

Tutorial for DIY Textured Dollar Store Pots
So the game plan for these pots was to create a layered textured look. I first decided to paint both the dollar store post with a base color.
One of the pots I painted in a gorgeous Coral color.
I just painted half of the pot as the upper portion I was going to use textured paints.
For the other pot, I used a beautiful Lavender color.
I did the same thing as I did with the other which was using a round fluffy brush only painting the bottom half of the pot.
Let the Pots dry before you move onto the next step.
This is the fun part where you get to play around with some Texture paints.
To create the gorgeous textured look you need to use palette knives or else you won’t be able to get the beautiful layered look with regular paintbrushes.
Palette knives are pretty inexpensive and the ones I use came in a pack of 18 or so palette knives which I have listed in the material supplies above as well.
I really enjoy these knives as I have used it to transform my Ikea Ivar Cabinets into a Buffet Table. You can read all about it in my Bright and Bold Dining Room Makeover post.
I also just recently used it to create a gorgeous Flower Clock as well.
So I was going to use four different colors of texture paints and each one was going to be layered one after the after.
I started off with the Rose Gold Textured paint.
Dip the palette knife into the textured paint and using the backside of the knife apply the paint. I went in with vertical strokes and repeated it all around the pot.
Then I layered on this gorgeous Plum color using the same method.
The final two colors I chose were blue and green.
With textured paints go in with the paint as the more you use the better-textured results you will see.
Give it 24 hours to fully dry as the paint is thick it might take a little bit longer than regular paints to dry out.
And there you have it.
A pair of boring faux topiary pots get a stunning textured paint makeover.
