What you need:
- Various sized Terra Cotta Pots
- Water based Acrylic paints in various colors
- Tapered Candles
- Any variety of plant
Paint any kind of design on the pots, then plant plants in them. (ie; Christmas Cactus for Christmas, flowers for Mother's day, etc).
OR - use smaller sized pots and paint your design on the pot turned upside-down. Place a tapered candlestick in the hole on the bottom of the pot and you have a darling candleholder.
You could even use a little raffia or something around the bottom of the candlestick to hide the hole.
Thanks to Julie in Utah for this idea.
