August Craft Challenge – decorate with a terra-cotta plant pot!
For the Third Monday of every month, Amelia (my friend and fellow blogger) and I do a project or post based on one chosen DIY craft or theme, then we share our results and hopefully have inspired you to join the challenge. (The links to my challenge results can be found at the end of this post.)
Last month was our fabric challenge and the picture to the left shows one of the small pillows I made to use on my Adirondack chairs.
This month our challenge item was a terra-cotta plant pot. I decided to make candle holders as in my world you can never have too many candle holders. Do you agree??
This project was so quick and easy and the combination of colors could be endless. For this project I used a cream color craft paint. It only took two coats. Once it was dry, I sanded the areas where I wanted a distressed look. I used E6000 glue to attach the saucer to the top. It just needs a candle and it’s ready to use.
Amelia had some left over yarn and glued rings of yarn in different colors and different widths. The plant definitely sets it off. Be sure to check out the full post at YouCanAlwaysStartNow.com
Be sure to Mark Your Calendar for September when we will be crafting or creating with mason jars.
Craft Challenges are such A Wandaful Thing!
