I am so excited to share this simple and quick diy project with y’all today! I am fighting for time to create lately, so when I can make something this cute and fast…bonus!! I am in the process of updating my covered porch out back and these little Outdoor Terra Cotta Candle Holders are the perfect accent for it…
Can it get any easier? I was excited to use the fabulous Patio Paints by DecoArt for this craft project. The paint is thick and wonderful to use on terra cotta pots to transform them into a work of art.
So how do you make these candle holders? Well, let’s collect the supplies…
Supplies Needed:DecoArt Outdoor Patio Paint in Cloud White Small Terra Cotta Pot and Saucer e6000 adhesive fine grain sanding block foam paintbrush
Paint the terra cotta pot on the outside with the patio paint. Then paint the inside and outside of the saucer. I painted 2 coats on each. The patio paint is thick, but dries very quickly.
Use the sanding block to gently go over the edges of the saucer and pot. There is not a wrong way to do this. Just simply sand until you are happy with the distressed look.
Here is a closer look at the distressing on the pot and saucer. This really makes this project, don’t you think?
Flip the pot over and apply a thin line of e6000 adhesive around the base of the pot. Center the saucer and apply pressure to allow the saucer and pot to adhere to each other. Cute right!?
Seriously, an adorable 15 minute diy project. I am so happy with these and they will really bring my summer porch together. I am waiting on new cushions for my furniture and once it is all together, I promise a photo. You might want to follow us on Instagram so that you can see the updates!
I love succulents, how about you? I decided to make a smaller version of the candle holders, and flip it over to plant a little succulent in it. I also quickly painted the inside of the pot I put the plant in with the patio paint, to seal it. Be sure to check out the DecoArt site for more tips and instructions on using Patio Paints.
Doesn’t the green of the succulent look amazing against the white, distressed pot?
The color possibilities are endless with the fun line of Patio Paints by DecoArt. This is also a great project to get your kids to help you with.

So tell me, what would you paint with Patio Paint?
