Oftentimes, Christmas is synonymous with candy and treats. Many people enjoy making holiday treats and then giving them away as gifts for friends, neighbors, teachers, and so forth.
One way you can deliver candy and treats is by making candy holders from clay pots. This is an easy, inexpensive, and creative way to deliver holiday treats!
The following are some ideas for clay pot Christmas craft candy holders:

Acrylic paints, if desired

Clay pots in assorted sizes
Acrylic paints in Christmas colors
Glitter, bows, fake holly leaves, or any other decorating items
Paint the pots in the color of your choice. The easiest way to do this is with sponge paintbrushes. Let the base color dry completely (if you are decorating the pot with glitter, sprinkle it on while the paint is still wet. This eliminates the need for glue.)
Decorate the pots however you want with a Christmas theme. Some ideas include writing their names, Merry Christmas, and so forth. If you want to write using glitter, use a glue pen and then sprinkle glitter over the letters. Cotton balls can resemble snow or snowmen.
Tie a bow around the neck of the pot and then fill with Christmas treats.
