Recycled Flower Container
Here’s an easy way to turn an old container into a pretty Recycled Flower Container to hold all kinds of special plants for Mom or a favorite teacher.
Chose the base color of your flower pot crafts for kids - we chose a nice, bright yellow. Paint the entire container with the chosen paint. Set it aside to dry completely.
Cut out a variety of different flowers - in all kinds of shapes and sizes. If you are not able to cut freehand like we did, just draw a bunch on the construction paper with a pencil and cut them out.
You will want enough flowers to nicely cover your pot with them.
Place a dot of glue into the center of each flower and glue a pom pom in place. You can use orange, yellow and white pom poms.
Bend the leaves of one of your flowers around the pom poms. Hold it in place for a few seconds. Once you let go this will give your flowers a little bend and make them stand out on the flower pot.
Repeat this same process for each of your flowers, it's a little bit time consuming but the end result is totally worth it.
Glue all the flowers onto your flower pot. All you need is a bit of glue on the back of the flower behind the pom pom. Glue them all around and fill up the pot.
