These are so fun and easy to make.and the possibilities are endless. I have seen candy dishes made from flower pots before. I decided to try my hand at making some. I started out with 6 inch terra cotta pots,and the bottoms. I also purchased 5.6 inch glass bowls. When I got home my wheels were turning and I had so many ideas. We are going to Disney for the first time soon and the kids want to earn money . So I thought I could make banks,and a Disney bucks chore chart.Then after Disney the kids can have their own candy bowls. For my daughter I decided on Minnie, and for my son I went with r2d2. I started with the pots and painted them the base color. You might need a couple coats depending on the desired look . After all design is on base and dried Hot glue the bowl to base. I put hot glue on base and bottom of bowl to get a good hold. I then painted the bottoms and made them the lids of the bowls. For Minnie I painted two wooden disc black. I cut a angled slit in the circles to sit on the lid. I then put a coat of black chalkboard paint on the ears. I wrote a countdown to our trip with a chalkboard marker,and then hot glued the circles to the lid. For me I decided to paint around the circles to cover up hot glue. To finish up Minnie I used some ribbon to make a bow. The kids love them. I hope you do to. I will be making more of these I am thinking Easter,Halloween so many ideas.
