Create and decorate a candle holder that will make a great gift! Mom is sure to appreciate artwork from her favorite little artist.

This is the season where the lawn and garden centers should be stocked with affordable terracotta pots & lids. You will then just need art supplies of your choice and pick out mom’s favorite candle. I painted my pot and lid and then poured paint over the bottom of tipped over pot. You could also skip paint and just use markers.

You will need:
Terracotta pot and lid
Paint or markers
Super glue or hot glue gun
Mom’s favorite candle
Optional- beads, rocks, etc. for around candle
