Drip Flower Pots with Candles



 2815
We search high and low around the web to find fun craft ideas using clay flowerpots. We love to pass these along to you since we think they are clever, decorative and fun to do.  Here is one from Beckie Farrant that is easy and just plain neat.

Supplies needed Large terracotta pot, Med terracotta pot, acrylic paints by Folk Art, river stone filler, primer & clear sealer. 

Start by priming the flowerpots.  The white background will really make your drips stand out.  You don't need to spray the sealer on the smaller pot because it will be mostly covered by soil.  Once dry, prop the pot off the ground with a tarp underneath.  Add some water to your paint to make it drippy.  Add a tablespoon to each bottle to get the right consistency.  Shake well.

Starting on the bottom edge, squeeze the pain on the edge and watch gravity do its job as the paint drizzles down the sides. Continue layering paint one after the other until you achieve the look you want.  Let dry for full 2 days.  Once dry spray with clear sealer for outdoor use.

Next add pot filler to the bottom pot.  Add the smaller pot in the middle and then fill up the large pot with soil making sure the small pot stays centered.  Plant your flowers. Then put pot filler in the small pot so you don't need to fill it with dirt. Fill the rest of the small pot with rock.  Add a battery operated candle inside a tall vase and place on top of stones.

That's it.  Light up for parties, place the flowerpot with candle on the patio or front steps to greet your guests. Just lovely and you did it all yourself.
