Shabby Little White Pots


One of my recent crafty endeavors resulted in this:

painted pot tea light holders northern cottage

when I saw this I had to make some little embellished pots of my own so I tucked it away for future reference here


I started off with some thrifted teeny tiny little pots

ahhh they’re so itty bitty cute!


The previous owners of these tiny pots had written contents on them so I just slathered them with
white terra cotta paint

I wasn’t looking for perfection – instead - going for a distressed shabby patina to them

once dry, I added some tiny little rub-on number decals

and added them to a lovely little
scrolled iron tea light holder

A cute fun little project
