Glittered Christmas Clay Pot – Ho, Ho, Ho!!

 I think I should have planned on doing 25 days, instead of 12 Days of Christmas, because more Christmas ideas keep popping into my head.

You can never have too much Christmas though, can you?

I have a rustic kind of gardening display above my kitchen window (see more here), that has several stacks of clay pots on it.

One day those pots caught my eye, and I still had the red paint and glitter out from making the Glittered Letter Apothecary Bottle Banner and the Mrs. Claus Cookie Co. sign, so I decided to use both items on one of the pots.

It’s perfect to hold the Christmas straws I picked up last week, but now I’m thinking I should make several of them, so I could put napkins and silverware in them also.  Wouldn’t that be cute for a Christmas buffet?

 This is the pot I picked to makeover.

 I painted the base first, and let it dry…

then out came the snowy white glitter!  I used a paintbrush to apply school glue around the top border of the pot, and sprinkled the glitter over it – instant happy!

 When it was done, it reminded me a little of Santa’s suit, so I added, “ho, ho, ho” to the front.

I have it sitting on top of an old postage scale I got from my church’s pastor when he moved last year.  I’ve had it in a back room, and use it to weigh larger packages, but I decided to bring it into my kitchen.  I have it sitting on a narrow counter above our dishwasher.  I’m not sure if I’ll keep it there, but for now, I love it.  It makes a nice backdrop for smaller items, but I can still weigh larger packages on it as well, so I’ll give it some time to see how well it works to leave it there.
