Flower pot candle holders

These candle holders are made from clay pots that are painted and stenciled.  I made six of them to use as a centerpiece on my Thanksgiving table but they would be great for any kind of gathering.


  • clay pot
  • paint
  • florist bricks or styrofoam

  • stencil

Step 1.

Paint pot and let it dry.

Step 2.

Cut a piece of florist foam and glue it in the bottom of clay pot.

Step 3.

Glue moss around the inside edge of clay pot.

Step 4.

I stenciled words that relate to things I am thankful for because I’m using these as a centerpiece for Thanksgiving dinner. You could use these for weddings, showers, or even birthday parties etc..

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
