Things To Do With Terracotta Pots

Mar 29, 2008
Everyone has some stuff that although they don't want to throw it away, they really don't know what to do with it. You would be surprised how much stuff you have that can actually be very useful and come in handy.

One of these things is terracotta pots that you may have had in your garden or displayed somewhere around the house. Apart from their most obvious use of storing plants, there is actually plenty more you can do with them if you decide that you no longer want them for that function. So rather than throw them away see if you can reuse them as one of these other handy tips.

Terracotta pots are very good at being used as something to store your stuff in. The fact that that they absorb any water which leaves the area dry and bacteria free is even better. This means that you can store virtually anything in them from little bits that create clutter but you don't want to throw away to sponges, scrubbing brushes and all other cleaning devises.

Even if you have broken any terracotta pots this does not mean that you have to throw them away. Provided that they haven't been completely smashed up they can be repaired fairly easily. It is very easy to replace them if they get broken so you don't even have to pay to take them somewhere to get fixed. All you do is simply moisten the broken pieces with water and then use carpenters glue to repair it. It is wise to secure the pot with something until the glue dries such as rubber bands or masking tape. Before you know it your pot will be looking as good as new and no - one will notice.

If you are simply bored of your terracotta pots and want to revamp them or add a bit of colour to them then you can make a whole new decoration or ornament out of them. You can easily do this by painting them or adding jewells to them. The result will look like you have a completely new ornament and no - one will ever notice the difference that you have in fact had it for ages.

If you don't want to use your terracotta pots to store plant in anymore you can still use them in your garden if this is what you want them for. They make great decorations simply dotted around the garden because they are unique and add a great feel to any front or back garden no matter how big or small it is.

It's not hard to see why terracotta pots have become so popular over recent years as they are so versatile and there is so much you can do with them. After all there aren't many other things you can buy that you can then re - use when you get bored of them or need them for another purpose.
