Step 1. Paint pots white.

Paint mini terra cotta pot with white acrylic paint. I used a simple foam paintbrush and it only needed one coat.

Step 2. Attach ribbon

Next, you will attach the festive ribbon to the top of the terra cotta pot. I used my “never-fails” 3-in-1 craft glue.

Add heart sticks to a Styrofoam block placed in the Valentines Day pot

Step 3. Add in heart picks.

To add the heart picks, I just broke off a corner from some styrofoam packing supplies I had. I used three Dollar Tree heart picks and differing heights. I just broke the wood sticks to the height I wanted and stuck them into the styrofoam.

Although it’s not shown in the picture here, I added in a 4th pick with a DIY felt rosette attached because I felt like it needed something more.

Step 4. Decorate your pot.

I glued on some glitter heart confetti to the outside of the pot. I used my 3-in-1 glue here again.

Step 5. Cover styrofoam

I used strips of tissue paper to cover the styrofoam. Alternatively here, you could use paper or crinkle paper shreds.

Step 6. Make tag.

I just cut out a strip of paper into a flag shape and did some hand lettering of “let love grow”. Quick tip for hand letter calligraphy, you want to make every downstroke thick.

Step 7. Glue flag to pick.

I just wrapped the flag around one of the picks and secured it with some 3-in-1 glue.
