We are part of the Core Blogger Program for DecoArt. We received product and compensation, but all opinions are 100% ours.

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…

Seriously…3 steps….paint…sand…glue!

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.

Step One:

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.

Step Two:

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?

Step Three:

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?
