Warm brown and neutral hues have a hold on my decorating style this month. When I think of how I want this season’s fall and Christmas decorations to look, I see lots of natural dried grasses and warm tones.
In years past I may have used more color, but I have moved on to a very natural style. Maybe it started when I began bringing lots of plants into my home? My goal was to help keep the air clean, but I ended up admiring how the vegetation brought an organic feel to our home décor.
In any case, you may remember my current love affair with terracotta spray paint. (“Stop trying to make fetch happen!” pops into my brain.) I can’t help it; I think everyone should be using this stuff. It turns anything into a red-brown masterpiece and this DIY gradient terracotta pitcher is the stuff earthy dreams are made of.
Spray paint makes creating a gradient or ombre effect incredibly easy, as I show here in this DIY Gradient Calendar. It’s all about the distance you hold the can from the object you are painting. The closer you get, the darker the tone becomes and vice versa. Let’s get to making!
Supplies needed for DIY terracotta ombre pitcher
Terracotta spray paint
White or cream pitcher
Step one: Begin spraying the bottom of the pitcher, holding the can about 6 inches away from the pitcher. If you notice drips, pull the can back a bit. As you work your way up, start pulling the can further and further away from the pitcher until you are just lightly dusting the middle of the vessel with color.
