I started by white washing several terra cotta pots I had stored away.

Mini Faux Seedling Pots
I’ve seen these in many catalogs this season and thought they would go along with my nature inspired holiday decor. They are very easy and inexpensive to put together and another way to bring the outdoors in ~ in a faux kind of way!
To do this I simply added a few drops of acrylic paint to a cup of water. The more paint you add the more opaque your ‘wash’ will be.
Brush the mixture onto your pots and let dry. I played around with a few different colors since I wanted each pot to have a different look. I used a combination of Apple brand Country Tan, Antique White, and Nutmeg Brown.
I did purchase a few new pine stems since I was looking for a more realistic looking ‘cutting’. I found some on sale at Michaels for $1.20 a stem so it was not that bad! I stuck a piece of cut floral foam in each pot, cut the stem to size and filled with green spanish moss.
How’s your holiday decorating is coming along? By the looks at some of the Holiday Party links some of you are way ontop of your game! I hope to get my house tour up sometime tomorrow so check back! Enjoy! XOXO
