Camilla from Family Chic has a ton of great ideas (like last week’s cupcake liner patio lights); here’s another great one — picnic food-covering domes made from terra cotta planter pots. Simple, innovative, and made with stuff you have at home — all qualities I love in a dollar store craft! You can get terra cotta pots at your dollar store or home improvement store, and drawer pulls can be found at thrift shops or hardware stores.  These pretty cloches will make a great statement on your picnic or party table, and could be at home at the right wedding reception.

Project Estimate:

  • Terra cotta pot, $1 and up
  • Drawer pull, $1 and up
