Use terracotta pots to make serving dishes

Here's a fun way to turn terracotta pots into stylish serving stands. All you need are some terracotta pots and Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint that you will find at your local Builders.

When you are hosting an outdoor shindig, food and refreshments are always at the top of the to-do list. With this easy project you don't have to worry about matching dishware or serving dishes - make your own!

No More Nails exterior adhesive

Rust-Oleum 2X or Universal spray paint in your choice of colour






1. Measure the diameter of the saucer and mark the centre. Apply exterior adhesive and then press the pot in place.

2. Let the adhesive cure for the specified time and then you’re ready to spray paint. You can customise the colour - or colours - to coordinate with your event.

3. Let the paint dry and your new serving pieces are ready. The stands make it easy to set up an attractive, multi-level display of food, drinks, and utensils.
