If you are looking for a fun craft to do with your child, you will love these decorative painted flower pots as a fun spring craft! The painted flower pot can either be gifted to a mom or grandmom or can just be kept at your own home! I got my kiddos to do this not too log ago because I love having crafts with their handprints or their fingerprints on them. You probably have everything that you need. Now this craft is messy but it can be done outside. Just grab a few hand wipes or paper towels and clean up is a cinch! These DIY Painted Flower Pots are a quick and easy craft but are so sweet and will be cherished for a long time! Grab a flower pot and some paint and you are ready!
DIY Painted Flower Pots Tutorial
Supplies Needed For Hand Painted Flower Pots:
- Flower Pot (any size will work…use one that you already have!)
- Paint (water based paint of course will wash of if you plan to place your pot out where it could get rained on so just think of that when you are grabbing your paints)
Instructions For DIY Painted Flower Pots:
Grab all your supplies and your kiddos and head outside! The weather is so nice and outside is where my kiddos love to be! Plus, since we are dealing with paint, outside is a good place for this craft!
These hand painted flower pots are pretty simple to make and they look so cheerful and cute! You can let you child choose if he/she would like to make handprint flowers or fingerprint flowers on the flower pot! We chose finger and thumbprint flowers for our decorative painted flower pots.
I grabbed a paper towel (a piece of paper would work too) and put a little squirt of our colors on there. Next, I just helped the kids place their thumb and fingers on the pot to make flowers. We used a thumbprint for the center of the flowers and fingerprints for the petals on our painted flower pot.
Once the painted flowers are done and have dried, there’s just one thing left…planting real flowers! Plant a few flowers in your flower pot for the finishing touch! I let my daughter pick out some flowers and we planted them together in her DIY painted flower pot.
Have your kids ever made a fingerprint flower craft before? These DIY painted flower pots are a really fun activity that I think every child would enjoy making! I’d love to see how your hand painted flower pots turn out! Tag us @familyfocusblog or #familyfocusblog
