    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    3. Once the paint has dried, apply painter's tape below the pots' upper rims. Cover the upper rims with Vanilla Shake.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. For a centerpiece that you can use by your front door, use a pencil to write "No." on the smaller pot and your address numbers on the larger pot. Use a round brush to paint over the pencil marks in Cactus.

    7. Cut metal ribbon to fit around the pot rims and adhere it to the pots with E6000 Glue. (Use clothespins to hold the ribbon in place while the glue dries. Remove the clothespins once the glue has dried.)

    9. Fill the larger pot with potting soil. Set the smaller pot inside, and poke the solar path light through the hole in the smaller pot so that it is planted into the larger pot. You can center the smaller pot inside of the larger pot or off-set it to the side.
