Sand and Seashell Covered Terra Cotta Pots

After an afternoon at the beach with my Grandloves, I came home inspired by the beach sand to create some Nautical-Inspired Sand-Covered Terra Cotta Post to help add some "Summer" decor to my home.
I took three Dollar Store Terra Cotta Pots, some Elmers Glue and Sand...and along with my little Craft Helpers, we created three pots in just a few minutes.
You can use any size or shape pot. If you don't have access to beach sand, you can purchase small bags at Michael's for about $2.29/bag.
Using the Elmer's Glue and a sponge brush, I applied the glue onto the pot - working in small areas.

    You can buy colored and regular sand at the dollar store also. If you are going to do a bunch of the pots a 50lb bag of playground sand is around $5. You can use the extra sand in making up your own cactus mix soil.
