Fancy Painted Flowerpot

Getting your kids to paint flowerpots is a fun, creative #garden activity. Not only will they be able show off their art and a beautiful plant or floral arrangement but it makes a great gift too!

What you need:

  • Clay flowerpot
  • Dish detergent (to wash the inside of the pot before you plant anything in it)
  • Newspaper
  • Pencil
  • Acrylic paints (assorted colours)
  • Paintbrush

Step 1:

Wash the inside of your flowerpot, even if it is new, with dish detergent. Rinse it thoroughly, and place it in the sun to dry.

Step 2:

Cover your work surface with newspaper.

Now it’s time to get creative!

Step 3:

You can either sketch a pattern or picture on the flowerpot or you can jump right in with your colourful paints.

Step 4:

Paint the design with acrylic paints.
Let the paint dry.

Step 5:

Once the paint is dry, put a plant in the flowerpot.
