Too Cute Gilded Planters

Happy Wednesday!

I’m back with another white & gold DIY (surprise, surprise)!

My succulent & cactus collection has grown *quickly* over the past few months. I’ve had one little guy from Bloomthat that has been doing well and was gifted a few more plants recently. My problem is that they all came in different pots – large and small – and wouldn’t all fit in my window. I wanted a bit of a more uniform look so I picked up some basic clay pots and some white spray paint…



  • Clay Pots
  • White Spray Paint
  • Liquid Gilding
  • Paint Brush
  • Painter’s Tape
  • Craft Knife

The project was really simple, it just took some time to allow for the paints to dry. Spray paint your (empty) clay pots white – inside, outside and bottom. I sprayed three coats to be sure there was no orange clay peeking through.

Once the paint is dry, you can paint the liquid gilding on! I made one pot with a bold gold stripe, another with thinner stripes, and one with a triangle pattern. Use the painter’s tape to make sure the liquid gold doesn’t bleed. Carefully cut the tape for any special pattern – but don’t cut through and slice the white paint!

Allow the paint to dry. Now you’re ready to repot your plants into these pretty planters!

What other color combinations would look good?
