First thing I did was wipe down my pots to make sure they were clean. Then I got a paint liner and I mixed 50% Water with 50% Paint (I used white paint and a greenish chalk paint). The best way to get a white washed look is by watering down your paint. I then took my paint brush and painted the pot entirely. I only painted down on the inside a few inches to where you think your soil will start. I ended up painting two coats on these to ensure the paint was adhered nicely to the pot. Let them dry completely.

I got some sand paper and sanded the paint off to give it a rustic distressed look. Then I got my stamps and my black stamp pad and stamped the pots. I wrote “Thank You For Helping Me Grow”. You can stamp whatever you would like but I thought this was the perfect little saying for a teacher gift. Lastly I sealed each pot with an acrylic sealer to protect the pot from water. Then you pot your succulent!
