I saw this idea online and thought it would be one that "anyone" could do. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought the terra cotta pots and trays because they often have them 50% off. Terra Cotta is not super expensive but Hey! every little bit helps these days. I liked the little pot that is a bit taller and skinnier for my base. But you can hold them up and see what size you need for the plate size you pick. They have many options available.
Items needed for this projects are:
- Terra Cotta plate (size up to you)
- Terra Cotta pot (appropriate size for base)
- Super glue or gorilla glue
- Craft Paint
- Paint Brush
- Clearcoat spray. I used a satin finish.
I wanted my stands to have a worn antique look to them but if you don't care for this look, you can paint yours solid. Here are a few pictures of my stand and tower including one to show how I am going to use my tower as a jewelry stand.
I am going to put this on the counter in my daughters bathroom. She loves this color right now. You can also find items in this color at PB Teen. I hope you have a fun time making this project. It is really easy and I can't wait to see how many things I will use them for!
Let me know what you come up with!
