How to "Tie-Dye" a Terra Cotta Pot

There is something very satisfying about intentionally dumping paint and watching it run. And at 50 cents a pop for a basic terra cotta pot, why not? Especially when the results are this cute.
- Terra cotta pot
- Craft paint
- Paper bag or newspaper
Turn your pot upside-down on a paper bag or newspaper.
One color at a time, pour a generous amount of paint onto the base of your planter, so much so that it drips down the sides.
Do not allow paint to dry in between colors, but do give each color a few minutes to run down the sides of the pot. Add as many colors as you like.
Allow to dry completely. The paint will be really thick, so this might take a while. Have patience.
Put a plant inside.
