Up today is a fun project that I wasn’t actually going to share on the blog…because it’s a repeat of a craft I showed you last spring. However, about halfway through the process, I changed my mind! I’m talking about Mod Podge and terra cotta pots. I made the pots featured here today as gifts for some friends. I love the way they turned out, and I thought you might like a unique gift-giving idea. The plan is to fill them with little bags of cookies or candy, so the pot becomes part of the gift. (I’ll be back in December with ideas for pot-fillers.)

The method for making the DIY Mod Podge pots didn’t change at all from when I shared it last spring. In fact, this time around, it all went quickly, and seemed easier. The idea came about when I saw the holly napkins. I knew they would work beautifully with Mod Podge, and when I paired them with the pots, I had a Christmas packaging design that I had never used before!

Since the background of the napkins is white, I decided to paint the pots the same color. It’s actually a DecoArt chalk paint color called “lace.” This made it much easier to cut out the holly, because I didn’t have to be super precise. The white background of the napkins blended right in with the painted pots.

DIY Mod Podge Christmas Pots Supplies Needed

I already had the paint and Mod Podge, so the pots and napkins were my only expenses. These DIY Mod Podge pots came to just under $6.00 each.

I know right now it seems very challenging to plan ahead for Christmas. Many of us don’t know who we’ll be with, or what kind of celebration will take place. The one thing I do know is that a heart-felt gift like this will truly brighten someone’s day. It’s simple enough that the recipient won’t feel obligated to reciprocate, yet it’s nice enough that they will feel special. Right now, at this point in time, I can’t think of anything better.
