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
Craft Supplies Needed For Hand Painted Flower Pot Ideas:
- Flower Pot (any size or material will work…use one that you already have!)
- Different Colors of Paint (water based paint of course will wash off 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)
- Paint brush, foam paint brush, or finger tips
This is a great way to give old pots a modern look with simple designs even kids can do.
Acrylic paint works great for kids and ease of use but it may wash off easily. So skip acrylic craft paint if you are wanting the right paint for outdoor use. Instead use chalk paint or exterior spray paint.
As far as the plant pot, terra cotta pots are a popular choice but really use can let your kids use whatever spring flower pots you have on hand.
Instructions For Painting 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!
For this easy DIY project, you will first have to settle on your painted flower pot ideas. These hand painted 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 some paint in vibrant 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. Easy peasy!
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.
I hope you enjoyed these flower pot tutorials. Have your kids ever made a fingerprint flower craft before? These DIY painted 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
