I’m Michael Tyler and for more than 8 years I have been creating Vectric’s Free monthly projects. I’ve made everything from spring wreaths and mantle clocks, to snow sledges and cheeseboards.
Did you know there are already more than 80 projects free for Vectric customers to take advantage of and we’re working on more every month? Each zipped project includes the files relating to the project as well as a comprehensive PDF guide that covers all the key steps help you complete your project - including tips on materials, tooling and finishes. Since 2018 free projects also come with their own video that tells the story of the project from start to finish.
The Flowerpot Terrace features cutouts to place two standard 4 " clay flowerpots inside a charming picket-fenced “terrace” as a decorative accessory for any home!
The project sample has a natural finish, but a nice variation would be to use paints and sandpaper to randomly scuff the painted finish for a “shabby chic” appearance. The sample was outfitted with artificial plants, but it’s possible to use real plants as long as they don’t grow too large. A good candidate would be small succulent plants. You may need to place shallow drip dishes underneath to catch any excess water coming from the pots’ drip holes. However, there are very realistic artificial plants available and they don’t require watering!
The finished dimensions of this project are 11.5 " Long x 6.75 " Deep x 5.25 " Tall.
If you go ahead and create this project, then it would be great to see a photo of your finished piece over on the Vectric Forum. Alternatively feel free to email us a picture of your finished piece at email@example.com.
