We took a clay pot and painted it. Yup, that's it. But is it perfect for St. Patty's Day AND for spring. I did my pot like a rainbow (think ROY G BIV) and the girls just painted theirs, although I did encourage them to use all of the colors of the rainbow.
I love doing crafts like these because not only are they cute but they are functional. After they dry I will fill them with dirt and we will be able to plant a flower or a starter plant in it for our outdoor garden for this summer.
I just used kid's washable paint to paint the outside of the pot so it is not a pot that will be able to be left outside unless I do a clear top coat of shellack (sp?).
They are super cute and I can't wait to plant in them. :)
