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.

Easter Place Cards Clay Flowerpots
 
You want this year to be extra special.  Not only are you preparing a wonderful Easter Supper but you have decided to put some extra effort into decorating the Easter Table.  Well, we are here to help. We though this idea was super easy and totally elegant.  
 
Not only is this DIY idea for a Easter Place Card inexpensive but it's easy to do. Take a clay garden planter and saucer.  Write each guest name with a paint pen on the side.  Fill the clay pot with shredded colorful paper.  Add a Chocolate Rabbit or Rooster as the centerpiece of the pot.  Be sure and use an over-sized animal to get the full effect. Then surround the chocolate animal with Easter candy treats. A clever touch is to fill the saucer with chocolate eggs.  It just looks adorable.  

Our clay flowerpots are inexpensive, made in Italy of the finest, most compact and smooth clay and come in many sizes to choose from. From small 3" pots to extra large planters, we sell all sizes of clay flowerpots and ship them across the United States.

Easter Baskets Clay Pots



 2107-Easter-Craft-Pots-D

Simple, Cute Craft Idea for Easter Basket or Decoration!
 
We see many craft ideas using clay flowerpots all over the web. But, we were drawn to this idea for its simplicity and ease.  We thought these clay pots would not only make a cheery Easter decoration but how about a homemade Easter Basket for young or old.

Start with our Italian Terracotta Flower Pots which are the most compact, smooth clay being manufactured today.  Purchase some pastel acrylic paint and paint the pots in a rainbow, solid or anyway you choose to decorate them.  Fill with shredded colorful paper available from most craft stores and fill with Easter goodies or treat. How much more simple does it get and look how cute it turns out.

Have them hide around your home for the kids to find Easter morning, give to a office coworker or friendly neighbor.  Include a seed packet so they can use the decorated clay pot to grow a plant with Spring right around the corner.

We also like the idea of having one already painted, then setting up a craft table for the grandkids on Easter morning while the adults prepare Easter Supper.  So many fun ideas from a few clay pots and paint.  Have fun!

Easter Tablescape Using Garden Pottery



 2106-Easter-Tablescape-F

What a beautiful way to decorate a table for Easter Supper!
 
Sometimes the simplest ideas can be the most stunning!  Here is an easy way to decorate your table for Easter using a few simple garden pots!

The centerpiece and focal point of the table is a large garden urn.  Buy an ivy plant at your local garden center or nursery or better yet go to a craft store and get a piece of silk ivy.  Fill the bottom of the urn or garden pot with floral foam.  Take a wire coat hanger and bend it into a circle sticking the ends into the foam.  Place the ivy in the base of the pot and wrap it around the coat hanger.

Next take a reed birds nest and place it on the top of the pot of course filled with a few candy eggs. Shown with a decorative bird on the top but you can use anything you want.   Next take small urns and fill with shredded paper and top with a green apple. The apples will pick up the color of the plates.  The hand painted stone name place cards, ribbons on glasses and brown burlap napkins are all the icing on the cake.  

This project is not that difficult or expensive.  Just break the photo down into the pieces you want to copy and create your own outstanding Easter Centerpiece using Garden Urns or Pottery.

Easy Easter Project




 14244--Grass-Title
 

We thought this idea was adorable and wanted to share!

 
For a visual treat at Easter, you can tuck a grass filled baked or garden planter into the garden.  Nestled into the grass, colored eggs look as if the Easter Bunny has just hidden them.  Their bright colors harmonize beautifully with surrounding tulips.  Here's how:
 
3 weeks before Easter, fill the container with thoroughly moistened potting mix.  Top the soil, with seeds of a lawn grass blend of perennial rye and red fescue sold as a sun shade mixture.  Then place the plastic eggs on the seedbed, so the grass grows up around them.

They place the container on a plastic sheet in a room with good light and mist the seeds with a spray bottle several times a day.

When the grass appears, the plastic eggs can be replaced by more elaborate ones made of glass or stone.  If the grass grows too tall and conceals the eggs, cut it back with a pair of scissors.

When the baskets are ready, they can be placed in the yard, garden or a patio area, tucking them between stones, bushes or even hanging on a tree branch.  Beautiful & easy!
