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

Step 1:
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.

Step 2:
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!

Step 3:
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.

Step 4:
Once the Mod Podge is dry, you can push a small piece of foam into the pot to hold your lollipops and decorations.
