How to make a terra cotta pumpkin candy dish!
First, you will want to paint your terra cotta pot and saucer with orange craft paint. I suggest painting 2-3 coats for full coverage.
Set those aside and paint your wooden knob with the green craft paint.
Once your saucer and knob are both fully dry use the E-6000 glue to attach the knob to the saucer.
Cut off a 6-8 inch piece of vine wire and wrap it around your knob. I also attached this with glue so that it wouldn’t move around.
That is all there is to it, super simple but loads of cuteness and totally functional as a candy dish too.
Here is a quick little video of the steps you will take.
It truly is the easiest little craft but a fun way to bring some fall decor into your kitchen or dining room area. You could also use smaller pots and saucers for decorations and even bigger sets for a Halloween night candy bowl.
