Spring and the Easter and
Passover holidays are a great
to share and give thanks with
those you love. Create a memorable
homemade gift with love to bring to
holiday celebration or to use
as a unique table centerpiece.
One fantastic way to create that special gift or centerpiece is to
get creative painting terracotta pots.
Purchase a terracotta pot at your favorite
gardening or thrift shop.
Select a size of your choosing and
then gather your favorite
Perhaps a vibrant pink, sunny yellow,
lime green, sky blue and orange sorbet.
Then pull out a painting brush and get creative!
Create spontaneously or you might want to draw a design
Choose a base color for your terracotta pot. Paint it. Then take
a pencil and draw your design onto the painted pot. Later, fill in
the design with paint colors of your choice.
Once the paint has dried, you can fill the pot with such items as:
A pretty plant
Jelly beans and other easter candies
Cookies or muffins wrapped decoratively
I still have a terracotta pot that I was given years ago as a gift (with chocolate chip cookies inside), that I use in my office to hold telephone books and other sundry items.
Getting creative with painting terracotta pots doesn't just
have to be reserved for spring either. Make painted gifts
and centerpieces with terracotta pots any time of year or for any holiday.
It's a great activity to do alone - or with your family
Spread some smiles & have a simply delicious
Easter and Passover!
