Quick DIY "vintage" flower pots

These "aged" terra-cotta pots are such an amazing, and quick project, and all you need it yogurt!
Do-it-yourself Yogurt "vintage" pots

One of the most natural-looking patinas can be achieved by simply slathering plain yogurt on a new pot. Yogurt applied to dry pots yields more dramatic results. For a subtler look, above, first soak pots in water for 15 minutes.

Tools and Materials

Plain yogurt
2-inch foam brush

1. Stir yogurt.
2. Use brush to coat surface of pot with yogurt, covering it completely.
3. Set aside in a shaded place until pot achieves the desired look, at least 1 month.

So easy!
