Flower Pots

Posted on

Ok so I didn’t make this one as much as I helped my kids.  Boy they had a blast! The pin I saw was from family fun magazine.
We bought cheep flower pots and painted them with outside craft paint.
I have no idea the type of ivy this was it just looked cute and was on sale for 50 cents each.    We also made 2 more using oregano for the kids grandmas they turned out great as well.
If painting was not enough fun we got to play with buttons:)  I pulled out the large button bag and we took floral wire bent it in 1/2 and put them through the holes of the buttons.  My kids loved it my 8 year olds buttons were all about color working well together, My 5 year old wanted to make sure he got small/medium/large on each, and my 3 year old made them with one button or sideways and they were great too.  Every plant we made( we did 5) had buttons from each of the kids.  They were so proud to give them away as gifts.

About danielle

Hi! I am Danielle Interior designer turned stay at home mother of 3 wonderful kids. I love to do crafts, projects, parties, and photography. With this being said I am a not a pro by any means and have had many many failed attempts. Some funny and some just plain ugly:) I do not care for cooking and house work. My goal is to find a better, faster, more organized way to just get it done so I can spend time with the ones. This is where Pinterest has come into my life. Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship. I have spent the better part of a day looking up great ideas and never putting them to use. What a waste of time... or is it? Sometimes I find something that rocks and I try it and the world is a better place:) But the worst is when I try something and it’s a big bust. A how did that ever pass for working, did they even read the steps they were giving, or do you think they get a laugh out of my attempt. Many friends have told me that I need to post the bad ones so they don’t bother and let them know the good pins so they can give them a try. So here goes!
