Put your own touch on a fiesta taco bar party when you add spray paint to a few hanging terra cotta pots. Tie a string basket and add a cactus. Then, hang them from a copper pipe or a colorful and festive live wall hanging decoration.

Step 1: Wipe down terra cotta pots with a damp cloth to remove any lingering dirt and dust. 

Step 2:
Tape off any areas you don't want to paint with painter's tape. Shake each can of spray paint vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball is released. 

Step 3: Work in a well-ventilated area, such as an open garage. Using slow, back-and-forth motions, spray on a light coat of the first color, carefully overlapping each coat for best coverage. Wait at least 30 minutes before applying a second coat.

Step 4: Once all colors are added, let the pot dry for at least 1 hour, then remove the tape for crisp lines.
