Terra cotta bunny candy dish.Make a cute bunny candy dish for Easter. Spray paint a terracotta clay pot and saucer white (any size you desire is acceptable). Sponge paint the interior of the saucer with a spring color if you desire (I suggest petunia pink, daffodil yellow, grass green, lovely lavender, or a light turquoise).

Paint a bunny face. (Use black Sharpie for easy control and precision when drawing the face.) Paint a heart shaped nose and lightly dab a bit of paint/blush on his cheeks using your middle finger.

Decorate a straw hat with leftover artificial blossoms, eggs, or what have you. Curl 2 ears from foam and attach with glue. Place hat jauntily on bunny head, fill with your favorite candy (purchased on sale and with a coupon of course!) and enjoy.
Make these using miniature pots for teacher gifts. They are adorable!

Making moss covered pots for your houseplants is so simple, and gives a decorative look by bringing the outside in.

You can choose to use your pots plain or painted. Cover with moss up to the lip of your pot, leaving the rim blank using a hot glue to hold together. Next take your eggs, or flower and put in pot. If there is room at top of the rim of your pot, you can stuff with extra moss to appear like grass. And to top it off emblellish with ribbon of your choice for a festive look.

painted clay pot saucer with butterflyI spray painted the bottom of the clay pot saucer white and added a body tattoo butterfly. I wrote "Welcome Friends" with a gold paint pen and sprayed a top coat of silicone.

You can also make a chain of them, using three saucers, hot glue picture eye hooks to the back and string on heavy rope. Start from bottom plate because you have to double loop rope or tie knots so plates don't slip down.

This candleholder is made from a terra cotta flower pot and saucer. I have a rubber stamp of the angel, which I pressed into some scrap polymer clay and baked to make a mold.

This is just to show you another project you can do with the terra cotta pots. You do the same as the bird bath, just turn the top tray upside down and it is a table.

Just plain acrylic will do, they sell special paint but don't waste your money on it. The terra is so porous that regular paint will hold. If you use a black matte finish paint it will make your pot like a chalkboard without spending extra money on special paint.

I've seen a lot of clay pots at garage and also estate sales. You can get them pretty cheap and if they are discolored, they can be spray painted.
