A terra cotta pot is very heavy. I wanted to be able to move it around without hurting myself…so I gathered pieces of Styrofoam and cardboard to fill the pot 2/3 up from top, this would keep the pot from being too heavy.
I cut a circle from cardboard that fit pretty good on top.
Then I added the sand.
Then I added the shells:
I don’t know how this one got lost…it was one of my first project to share on my DIY website almost a year now. It was really a big hit. On Hometalk , I won my first Challenge! Over 1million I was so excited.
It is so beautiful….so easy to make…and is a wonderful memento of your happy times at the shore. Think of all those shells you collect, and the special memories behind them.
You will love making this for your patio..
