I love a weekend filled
And when I say “blessings” I mean time spent
together with family.
The Hubbs and I enjoyed a nice date night
on Friday, then Saturday morning we picked up the
Grandloves and went to breakfast.
Afterwards, we all spent the afternoon on
the beach. Another “blessing” is that we live
literally minutes away from the beach, so we can go
and enjoy a few hours here and there, when we want.
And me being a blogger, I couldn’t help but notice
the pretty beach sand, and from there –
I envisioned these…
Sand Covered Terra Cotta Pots
So, you’re probably asking yourself how I possibly
went from this…
… to this!
When you go to the beach, everything gets
covered with sand. When I spied the sand buckets
partially covered in sand, my creative juices
started flowing. 😀
I just adore the way these pots turned out,
and you won’t believe how fast and easy they were to make.
Here are the supplies…
Dollar Store Terra Cotta Pots
Some Beach Sand
(you can buy craft sand at Michael’s for about $2.99/bag)
No project is complete at The Everyday Home
without some super cute Craft Helpers.
I had three… 😀
They were pretty disappointed I was
only making three pots because they had s0
much fun. 🙂
First, I coated the pot in the glue, working
in quarter sections.
Then, we dribbled the sand onto the glue-covered pot,
and I patted it lightly to help secure the sand in place.
It literally only took minutes to cover each
Finally, we left the pots in the sun for a bit
until the sand hardened and dried.
While the pots were drying, I went digging through
my leftover ribbons, and found a pretty
Nautical-looking burlap ribbon.
Once I added the ribbon, I simply
hot-glued a single shell onto each pot.
You could add several smaller shells.
A small faux plant was added to each, and some bright
green moss helped add an extra burst of color.
I made these pots to add a bit of Nautical-style to my
front Foyer chest which is in need of some
I think these three pots, along with a large bowl filled
with the remaining shells will be perfect.
If you didn’t want to add plants, these would be
equally as pretty as candle holders.
Simply place some tape over the hole in the
bottom of the pot, fill with more sand, and
nestle in a white candle.
I can’t wait to work on giving my Foyer Chest
a touch of Nautical-inspired Summer Style.
I promise to share. 🙂
