How to make a Santa Treat Holder

Step 1

First, run a small band of glue around the base of your terracotta pot. Quickly add your red yarn and hold in place until glue dries.

Step 2 

Continue to wrap the red yarn around the terracotta pot until you reach the lip of the pot. Then continue to wrap yarn around and around. I did three layers of yarn. Glue end using your glue gun.

Step 3

Run a small band of glue around the top of the flower pot and glue white yarn in place. Continue to wrap white yarn around the entire top of the flower pot.

Step 4

Glue two black buttons to the front of the flower pot and we're ready to fill our Santa Treat Holders. You can fill them cookies, lollies, or even a small succulent as a gift – it’s completely up to you.
