See how easy it is to repurpose common Goodwill finds into decor, using just a few inexpensive embellishments. Fill them up with your favorite Valentine’s Day candy and group several of them together for maximum impact. You may want to make a few to give away as gifts.

Supplies needed:

2- Terra Cotta plant pots with a base
2- Glass bowls with a flat bottom – for sizing, these glass bowls need to sit on top of the Terra Cotta pots when they are turned upside down.
2- Wooden Balls (flat ended) found at Michael’s
Foam Hearts – very inexpensive at craft stores
Red Spray Paint or Acrylic Paint (we used spray paint)
White Acrylic Paint – just a small bottle is needed for the wooden balls
White Acrylic Paint Pen – from the craft store
Hot Glue Gun
Candy- it’s always best to use individually wrapped candy
Directions:

First paint or spray paint the pots and the wooden balls. You may need more than one coat if the plant pots are porous. We used white acrylic paint for the wooden balls.
