Flower Pot Crafts
Great Gift Idea!
I love Flower Pot Crafts! Gardening with kids is a great way to get them involved in the vegetable garden but we can’t spend all our time outside.
I have some ideas for Garden crafts for the kids (and you of course)
Let's start with Flower Pot Crafts (Clay Pot Crafts)
Decorating a flower pot or a terracotta clay pot is a great craft activity, the kids can keep them or make them for presents. Make more sophisticated ones for aunties and grandmas or keep them fun and colourful for the kids to give to their friends and cousins. Flower Pot Crafts make great presents for Easter, Christmas, Birthdays, or any occasion.
Decorating your PotYou can decorate it so many ways, the only limit is your imagination:

The Finishing Touch
You can seal the inside of the pot with an acrylic sealant if you are NOT going to use the pot for plants. Visit your craft shop to get the right stuff.
If using the pot for plants – leave the inside but seal the outside if you need to protect your design from water. Get a sealer from your hardware or paint shop.Potted Colour
Work out who the pots are going to go to so you can plant a bulb or some flower seeds and have it started growing when you give it for a pressie. You’ll need to know the month you want to give the pot so the plant will be starting to grow just in time.So many other ideas…
Decorating is just one idea, there are many craft ideas you can make with clay pots and saucers.Gift Baskets
