Wisteria is one of the prettiest spring flowers. Its lavendar blooms cascade among trees and porches. The perennial purple vine twines on grand castles and humble cottages too. Since it has a mind of its own, and needs very little tending, it grows wild in the wooded lots of my neighborhood. Paint A Wisteria Flower Pot to celebrate spring in your own neck of the woods!
Materials to Paint A Wisteria Flower Pot
- 5″ terra cotta clay pot and saucer
- brushes-1″ sponge, 1/4″ angle, small round, 0/0 liner
- paints- Apple Barrel 21977E Wisteria, 21396E Sublime Lime, DecoArt- Kelly Green, Snow
- Aleene’s Acrylic Gloss Spray
Instructions for the Wisteria Flower Pot:
Paint white stripes and the rim of the pot using your 1″ sponge brush and Snow. My stripes are approximately 2″ apart. You will need several coats of paint. Once it’s dry, touch up any wiggly lines with the liner brush and Snow. Paint the tray with Wisteria and the 1″ sponge brush. You can use a hair dryer to hurry things along in between coats.
Use the 1/4″ angle brush and a mixture of Kelly Green and Sublime Lime to wiggle in the leaves. Wisteria leaves have one leaf on the end, then rows of leaves below (or above) that on each stem.
Paint the veins on the leaves in an alternating pattern (the leaf veins are not side by side, as you can see in the photo above) with Kelly Green and the liner brush. Paint the leaf branch with the liner brush and a mixture of Kelly Green and Sublime Lime.
Paint some wisteria blooms with the small round brush and a mixture of Snow and Wisteria. Connect the blooms to the branches with the liner brush and the same Wisteria/Snow mixture.
Paint Kelly Green and Wisteria swirlies with the liner brush.
It’s ok to paint the wisteria blooms over the leaves. You want a layered look on your wisteria flower pot.
Fill in more leaves and blooms until the front half of your pot is filled with wisteria.
When everything is nice and dry, take the pot and tray outside and spray them with Aleene’s Acrylic Gloss Spray.
You’re all done! I hope you enjoyed learning how to Paint A Wisteria Flower Pot.
