Easter Flower Pot Idea



 3916-Easter-Craft-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.

Make Clay Pot Leprechaun Hats



 3891-Claypot-Crafts
Here is another fun craft idea using clay flower pots and turning them into something decorative & playful.  Since it's St. Patrick's Day today we thought we would show you how to make a Leprechaun Hat.  We saw this easy idea at thatswhatchesaid.net 

Purchase small clay flowerpots. Of course you can get them from us or any craft store.  Paint them with an acrylic green paint.  It may take 3 coats to get them covered because you want a bold bright green.

Wrap a black ribbon towards the bottom of the clay flowerpot. Since the pot is not a true cylinder, you will have to adjust in the back to the ribbon to sit properly in the front. Use a hot glue gun to secure the ribbon in place.

Next use an Xacto knife to cut out the buckle.  Use gold card stock and hot clue in place.  Now we know it's hard to believe but that is it. Think of all the fun things you can do with these hats.  Place one at each place at the dinner table. Stack the pots on a living room fireplace mantle and decorate with clover.  Place them around the house and put a gold candy coin under each one and use them like a treasure hunt.

The whole idea is to have fun and be creative.

:

Paint the terracotta flower pots red and the saucers black, let dry.
Cut 1" strip of white batting and glue to the bottom of each pot.  You can substitute cotton balls or pom poms if necessary.
Glue the length of ribbon that fits all the way around the two pots when next to each other, adding an extra 8" of overlap.  Cut a square shape from the gold glitter foam sheet, with a smaller square in the center for the belt buckle.  Attach to the front.
