3-Tier Fairy Garden

In just one day, you can create a personalized 3-tiered garden for your favorite space in the house. Bright-colored spray paint and chalkboard paint put a DIY touch on three plain terra cotta pots. Add your fairies and you've got a fun and cheerful place to grow succulents, herbs or other small plants. 

 

Project Steps

Step 1
Gather supplies.

  

Step 2
Always work in a well-ventilated area, such as outside or in an open garage. Prime pots using Rust-Oleum’s Universal Bonding Primer to all 3 pots inside & outside. Let dry.

Add the painters tape and paper to prep all three pots for adding the fluorescent paints.

 

Step 4
For the small pot, spray the Fluorescent Yellow Paint to the top area inside and outside of the pot. Let dry.

 

Step 5
For the medium pot, spray the Fluorescent Pink Paint to the top area inside and outside of the pot. Let dry.

Take off the painters tape & paper from all three pots.

 

Step 8
Add the painters tape and paper to prep all three pots for adding the chalkboard paint.

Add the Chalkboard paint to the lower area of all three pots. Let dry. Then remove the painter's tape and paper.

 

Step 10
Using the White Enamel marker, paint a line where the fluorescent color and the chalkboard color meet on all three pots.

  

Step 11
Prep the medium pot for chalk writing by using the side of a piece of chalk, rubbing it in the area where the wording will be written, and then rubbing the area with a lint free cloth.

Write "Fairies Welcome!" on the middle pot using a piece of chalk or a chalk marker.

 

Step 13
Add a small amount of large stones to each pot for drainage.

 

Step 14
Add potting soil to all three pots.
