Express your affection by creating handmade Valentine’s Day decor for your friends and family to enjoy. These DIY Valentine’s Day candy displays are made from Terra Cotta pots and glass bowls we found at one of our favorite Goodwill of Orange County stores. See how easy it is to repurpose common Goodwill finds into decor, using just a few inexpensive embellishments.
Wouldn’t these look great displayed at your home? Fill them up with your favorite Valentine’s Day candy and group several of them together for maximum impact!
Everyone who saw these, just loved them! We enjoyed watching them break into smiles when they recognized the everyday objects we used to make these delightful Valentine’s Day candy displays.
First paint or spray paint the pots and the wooden balls. You may need more than one coat if the plant pots are porous. We used white acrylic paint for the wooden balls.
Choose your foam hearts and layer a few of them. We liked a combination of colors and sizes.
Glue the hearts to your pots, once the paint is dry.
Place a stream of hot glue around the rim of the pot.
Hot glue the glass bowls to the painted pots.
Hot glue the flat side of the wooden ball to the Terra Cotta pot.
Place your favorite candy in the glass bowls.
And then cover the glass bowl with the painted pot base.
Now, stand back and admire your handcrafted Valentine’s Day decor!
