The Purpose Behind Paint a Pot for Peace Day

As autumn settles in and the holiday season approaches, it’s the perfect time to come together and make a positive difference in the lives of others. “Paint a Pot for Peace Day” serves as an opportunity to harness the universal language of art to connect people across generations, backgrounds, and communities. Alzheimer’s is a disease that affects families across the globe. While robbing our loved ones of a lifetime of sacred memories in seemingly little to no time, Alzheimer’s shows no mercy. By sharing your creative talents and shining energy, you can brighten the lives of seniors who may experience the disease. Not to mention, donate to an impactful cause.

How You Can Take Part

1. Gather Your Supplies
To get started, you’ll want to find some pots. You can find affordable clay pots easily find at local garden centers, dollar stores, or through online retailers. Select a variety of sizes and shapes to add a touch of diversity to your project. For a more resourceful solution, look around and see if any pots you currently own could use a new look.


2. Choose Your Dixie Belle Paint Products
Our extensive range of paint products is ideally suited to support a creative, humanitarian endeavor such as this. For your painted pots, we recommend using our high-quality Chalk Mineral Paint, known for its excellent coverage and smooth finish. On the contrary, Dixie Belle’s Terra Clay Paint in the vibrant color Lani’s Lagoon is the perfect hue to signify your support. For added flair and decorative accents, explore our vibrant and long-lasting Gilding Wax.


3. Let Your Imagination Soar
Unleash your creativity as you design and paint your pots. Whether you opt for classic holiday themes, uplifting messages, or intricate patterns, the artistic direction is entirely up to you. Use Dixie Belle Paint Belle’s and Whistle’s product line to take your creation to an even higher level. Add Mylar Stencils and Transfers for a flawless design.


4. Share the Love
Once your pots are complete, take a glamorous photo of your masterpieces and post them on Facebook! Dixie Belle Paint will share a designated post in which creators will post their masterpieces in the comments. Be sure to use the hashtags #paintapotforpeace and #dbpgivesback. For every single photo shared on the post, Dixie Belle Paint will generously donate $1 to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund.
