Check out this great tutorial from At The Picket Fence for making aged terra cotta pots. Aren't they gorgeous? They're also incredibly cheap! These same pots would sell for a minimum of $40 at a gardening center. I looked recently on a trip to Home Depot and couldn't justify the price, but this project is much more cost effective and allows for customization. I love the addition of pale greens and blues, but any pastel or pale color would work.
