Begin by dry brushing your flower pot. In order to dry brush, you use a dry paintbrush that hasn’t been dipped in any water yet. Roughly apply the paint to the flower pot in quick strokes. This gives it a weathered look! Allow the paint to dry thoroughly. 

Place a rock on the inside of the pot. This will cover the drainage hole and keep the gravel or sand from falling through.

Fill the flower pot with gravel or sand. Leave a bit of space at the top to add your succulent.
