How to Make a Terracotta Pot Topiary
Pots aren't just for plants! This creative terracotta pot display is a whimsical table top decoration for spring. Place it outside on a picnic table or add a touch of lush moss to your kitchen counter, either way this lit grapevine ball will cast a soft glow that you'll love.
Water down white paint and randomly apply to the pot with a foam brush. If desires, wipe down select areas with a damp rag while still wet.
Place floral foam
Cut a section of floral foam to fit inside the pot about 1" below the rim. Leave space on a side of the pot for the battery pack.
Glue moss along the rim of the pot. Place some Spanish moss inside the pot to cover the foam.
Secure grapevine ball
Feed the lights up into the ball and slide the battery pack into the pot. Position the ball onto the pot. Cut a section of wire, bend into a U and insert it over a section of the ball and into the foam.
