{DIY} Terra Cotta Jewelry Tower


Terra Cotta Pot Jewlery Stand {The Preppy Strawberry}




I saw this idea last summer on pinterest and I knew I had to try it!  It’s  pretty easy craft  it just takes some time to complete the steps. 


Here’s what you will need: 

Terra cotta potsyou pick the sizes!  I picked mine up at Joann’s fabrics

craft paint –  choose any color you want for the base.  I used the Joann’s brand paint. 

White, Black, and Brown Paintto create the antique washed look on my project. 

clear coat glaze sprayyou can find this with the spray paint

Gorilla glue or crazy glueI used gorilla glue.

Picture of my small gray stand – this one I use in my kitchen for change and well as you can see in the pictures below just about anything thing lands on this stand!


1. First step is to glue your pieces together.  I used the hole in the center of the pot to mark the tray for the center. 

2.  Let the glue dry before you start painting

3. Paint your pots with your base color – I used two or three coats.  You will need to be the judge. 

4.  Once my paint dried I started the antiquing process.  First I used white.  You will want to squirt the white into a cup of water – then paint the wash on your stand.  Then take a paper towel and wipe the paint around.  Let this dry and then repeat with the brown or black – your choice.  I used brown as my next wash layer.  You can repeat as necessary to create the perfect look! 

5.  Once it has dried you will want to spray your stand with a clear glaze to give it a finished look!
