These adorable Flower Pot Candy Dishes will make a great gift for Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation, a great gift for any occasion. They are easy to make but are just to adorable! My son made these for his teacher’s for Teacher Appreciation Day, and they just loved them.
* Glass Bowl from Dollar Tree (Found by the vases) make sure there is no decorative rim
* Flower Pot 6 inch pot
* 4 inch bottom
* Small Bottle Of Acrylic Paints in colors you want to use (Walmart, Hobby Lobby, Michaels)
* E6000 Glue
* Paint Brush
* Stencil for letters
* Clear Contact Paper
* Wooden handle (Small)
Step 1: Paint the Pots in the colors you would like them to be. You will want to put 2 coats of paint on them. You will paint the wooden handle at this time as well.
Step 2: Use the stencil to make the letters of the saying you want on the pots. You will want to write the letters on the paper side of the contact paper. The letters will need to be written backwards on the contact paper.
Step 3: Cut out the letters making sure to save the centers of the letters to use on the Pots. You will throw away the actual letters or you can use them on a different project. Place the outline of the letters on your pot. Push all the contact paper down so that it adheres to the pot so your paint will not run
Step 4: Add the centers of the letters to the outlines where they belong and again make sure that they adhere to the pot
Step 5: Paint the letters in the color or colors you would like them to be and let them dry
Step 6: Once the letters are dry peel away the contact paper gently and remove the centers gently
Step 7: Glue the glass bowl to the flower pot and place the candy in the pot so that it will give it some added pressure to hold down the bowl while it dries over night.
Step 8: Glue the wooden handle onto the bottom of the flower pot tray and you can also use scotch tape to hold it in place to add a little more pressure onto the handle so that it dries and holds.
Your candy dish is now complete as soon as the glue is dry. You do want to make sure that you allow it to dry for the 24 hours anything less and your candy jar may fall apart. It’s an easy but beautiful project. As I stated my son made the ones pictured above so even children can make them with some help with the contact paper. Happy Crafting!
