Easter Flower Pot Idea

Easy Easter Craft Project using a clay flower pot!
Start with a nice smooth Italian clay flower pot.  Make sure it is clean. If there are any finger prints or marks on it, just wash with warm water and soap and rinse good.  Dry completely.  

Take Folk Art acrylic Paint and stencils purchased at Michael's craft stores.  Lay the stencil on the pot where you want it placed.  Squirt some paint on a paper plate.  Dip the stencil brush end into the paint and make little circles on the stencil to transfer the paint.  Don't get the brush to full. If you do dab some of it off.

It doesn't take much to paint on the design. If you keep the brush fairly dry you won't get the leaks under the stencil.  The Folk Art stencils have a sticky back to help it stick to the pot surface.  They are easy to clean up also.

Once the pot is finished, fill with floral foam.  Top with shredded paper and then stick the items you purchased around the pot into the foam until you get the desired look.

At the end of the Easter Season, you can take it all out and have a great flowerpot to plant in.
