1.  Dip your paint brush into the chalkboard paint and apply a generous coat to the flower pot.  Make sure you get full coverage on the first application.  Depending on the type of chalkboard paint, If you let it dry and try to apply a second coat it will most likely leave lines.

2.  Let the pots Dry for 30 – 45 minutes.

3.  Take your chalk and write your message on each pot.
