This DIY Flower Pot is a super cute Valentine’s Day gift to make for your Valentine this year! You can fill it with anything you’d like to give as a gift! It’s a double-cool gift since you can really use it as a flower pot afterwards! You can even include a packet of flower seeds to get them started! Do you know who you’re going to give this to?
You will need:
- tiny ceramic pots
- I found them 3 for $1.00 at Dollar Tree. You can also find them at craft stores and home/garden stores.
- paint in the colors you’d like to use
- paint brushes
- a pencil with an unused eraser
- black permanent marker
- mod podge (to protect it and make it last)
- foam to put inside the pot
- your gift items
- lollipops, heart picks, fake flowers, etc
Paint the pot however you’d like. You can do one color all over, or choose to do two colors like I did. You can also use glitter, stickers, and anything else you have to decorate it.
Once the paint is dry, use the eraser of your pencil to dot on the eyes and the cheeks. You can then draw a cute mouth with the marker or paint it on with a tiny paint brush. When the eyes are dry, you can also put a dot of white paint on one edge of the eyes to make it even cuter!
When your flower pot is fully dry, cover the entire thing with Mod Podge. You can flip the pot over a bottle of paint to raise it up and help you cover the entire pot. The Mod Podge helps protect the paint on the pot and gives it a nice shiny finish.
Once the Mod Podge is dry, you can push a small piece of foam into the pot to hold your lollipops and decorations.
That’s it! You can make one for each of your friends and make a super special one for your Valentine!
