Wheatgrass In Painted Pots DIY

Every spring I love growing pots of wheatgrass to give as gifts and just to have around the house for springtime. My sister Design Mom actually taught me this trick a long time ago. (read instructions on how to grow the grass here.) But it is still one of my favorite things to do in the Springtime. I paint a few pots with designs or quotes about springtime and take them to friends. It’s perfect for the time when it is almost-Spring-but-still-cold.  And, since wheatgrass only needs a few days to grow – ours will be ready in time for Easter!

Material: Terra cotta pot, soil, wheat grass seeds, acrylic paint, paint pen
Step 1: Paint the terra cotta pot
Step 2: We used a paint pen to write a spring poem on the outside
Step 3: Plant the wheat grass
Step 4: Watch it grow!
