Christmas brings out the crafter out of me. Not only do I want to bake and make homemade gifts, but I want to decorate! In most homes you will find a Christmas tree decorated. And, in our home there is no exception! The Christmas Tree is a staple in our home. Not only do I want to decorate my Christmas tree each year, but I want to decorate throughout the entire house!

How fabulous are these christmas potted plant candles? I am just adoring them and wanted to share this simple Farmhouse inspired DIY – how to project with you. I just love this idea. It’s so simple yet creative!
Krylon stone textured spray paint
bag of rice
sheet of moss
step 1 – If using new terra-cotta pots then you will need to sand them lightly with sand paper and then spray a coat of the Krylon stone textured spay paint. make sure you cover your pot completely. Let dry
step 2- Once pots are dry , you will need to sand them with coarse sandpaper (60-80 grit) to remove the textured spray pant untill it looks like mineral deposits like the ones you see on old pots.
step 3- Now its time to fill your pots. As you know each pot at the bottom has a small hole you will need to use a piece of tape to cover the hole. (I used duct tape) you can also use package tape . Next, you need to fill your pot with rice. This will hold your candle . After filling you pot with rice to your desired height, place your candles in pots. measure and cut a sheet of moss (you can find at your local A.C. Moore or Michaels) in small pieces and tuck in and around your candle.
