You’ll Need:
1 Flower Pot
1 flower pot base
1 knob (They have these in the craft section of walmart/target) for .59 each
1 Round vase (bought it at the dollar store)
Spray Paint (Whatever colors you desire)
Glue
Buttons, Ribbon, various colors of paint for eyes, nose

Spray paint the flower pot whatever color you prefer, here, I painted the pot base white. Flip the base of the flower pot saucer over and spray paint or hand paint that as well. To give the effect of snow, mix 1 tsp of sand per 1 T. of paint. Apply by dabbing it with a paintbrush.

Let the pot dry (this varies depending on the brand of spray paint used). Ours took 30 minutes to cure. Attach the buttons with a dab of glue/

While the flower pot is drying, Paint the knob, which will become the candy jar handle, here I painted it white. Attach the knob to the saucer to make the “Top” of the candy jar.

To give the appearance of “Frosty” the snowman, spray paint the outside of the round vase with “Frost” spray. I found this spray in the paint department at walmart for $2 a can. It’s meant to “frost” bathroom windows. Let it dry 2-4 hours before painting the face.

Using a strong glue, attach the glass jar to the flower pot base. Let it dry completely and set overnight to cure.
