Step 1. Paint pots white.

Paint mini terra cotta pot with white acrylic paint. I used a simple foam paint brush 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.

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 styrofoam. Alternatively here, you could use paper or crinkle paper shreds.

Step 6. Make tag.

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