Polka Dot Pot Step 1

Step 1:  Paint the bottom of your pot (not the rim).  Paint dries unbelievably quick on terra cotta so you’ll be ready for step two in less than 30 minutes.

Step 2:  Using a round pouncer brush, pounce the white paint over the pot in a random fashion sprinkling the Diamond Dust or Glitter over the wet paint so it will stick.

Add some wrapped Peppermints or other wrapped candy of your choice…the Peppermints look cute so that’s why I used them but so would candy canes or other Christmas Candy.
