Christmas Treat Holders DIY
You can find an assortment of terra cotta pots in various sizes at Dollar Tree or any craft store.
Each pot got two coats of red paint for good coverage.
I had these black vase filler gems in my craft stash. They work great for the buttons. I also had a skein of fluffy white yarn to use for the trim.
Glue the yarn around the top portion of the pot. I started with a small dot of glue and then added a few more along the way until the area was covered.
If you prefer, you could use paint instead of yarn. I like the thickness this fluffy yarn gives to the candy holders. Glue two of the black gems to the center of the pot.
I used three different sizes for this set of three treat holders. Two of the them are large enough to hold cookies, while the small one is great for individually wrapped candy.
Terra cotta pots can also be used for candy dishes. I used a round wood disc, painted red, and a small drawer pull from my craft stash. The pull is painted black and glued to the disc using Gorilla Glue.
Fill the jar with individually wrapped candy and give as a gift or use it for a coffee table decor piece.
To give these as teacher gifts or hostess gifts, stack cookies and wrap them in clear plastic wrap. Tie the wrap with a festive bow.
