DIY Cottage Chic/Shabby Chic Miniature Flower Pots

Hey Everyone!  Thanks again for stopping by Sweet Home Designs!

Today I've put together a couple of really sweet Shabby Chic Miniature Pots!

These items have been posted in my Etsy Shop!  Please stop by and have a look!

Peach and Blue Miniature Flower Pot

Blue and White Miniature Flower Pot

Pink and White Miniature Flower Pot

What you'll need to recreate these items:

Glass Votive Holder
Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Paint
Oven (for curing)
Dried Flowers
Tacky Glue

Using a sponge paint brush and Martha Stewart's multi-surface paint, paint your glass votive with 2 coats of paint.  Wait an hour between coats for better coverage.

After painting the votive, place it on a cookie sheet (an old one), and bake it in the oven @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Turn off the oven and let them cool in the oven.  This will cure the paint.

Then use the sandpaper to scuff up the outside to give it that cute Shabby Chic look!

I took some raffia and twine and wrapped underneath the lip of the votive.  I glued it with Fast Grab Tacky Glue.  Then I took some flowers and arranged them along with some charms and buttons.

I decided to add the dried moss for fun, topped with a couple more flowers!

Thanks again for stopping by!
