Spoon Snowmen In Terracotta Flowerpots

Turn a plastic spoon into a snow man in a flowerpot

Love this crafty idea using our clay flowerpots.  This project is a bit more involved but look how cute they turn out and you will have them for year of year to display.  These would work great for place holders also by writing the names of each guest right on the pot rims.

Flowerpot snowmen DIY craft idea

Supplies for one snowman.

1 - 4" clay flower pot
Plastic Spoon
Blue craft acrylic paint
Blue Felt
Matte finish sealer (American DuraClear Stain Varnish
Floral foam
White tissue paper
White pom poms
Scissors, toothpicks, hot glue gun

Directions:  Paint the clay flowerpots blue with a white rim.  When dry use a toothpick and white paint to decorate the pot with snowflakes.  When dry, apply a sealer.  Use a liner brush to paint an orange nose onto the back of the spoon.  Use a toothpick dipped in black ink to paint the eyes.  Use a black pen to add simile and eyebrows. Cut a 1/2" wide strip of felt and fringe the ends.  Add a dab of hot glue about 3" from the right end.  Place the snowman into the glue, then wrap the scarf around several times, securing with more hot glue.

Cut a small square of floral foam so that it fits snugly inside the clay flowerpot.  Insert a snowman spoon into the foam.  Tear or cut a sheet of tissue paper in half, roll up and fill the inside covering up the floral foam.

There are 4 different hat options so if you want more detail click this link.
To finish the flowerpots off, top them with sparkly pom poms to look like snowballs
