Mother’s Day Photo Flower Pot
Sometimes I get so wrapped up in projects, working on projects, blogging about projects, planning for projects, making projects to sell…..that I forget to make things for the people I love and care about. This year I tried to be on the ball and get some Mother’s Day projects made.
I decided I wanted to make a Photo Flower Pot for my Mother In Law. I started out with a plastic flower pot from the dollar store. I decided to go with plastic so it would be nice and light to ship across the country. I wasn’t really feeling the green color of the pot though and decided to paint it with a glossy black spray paint.
Once the pot was painted black it was time to add the photos. I gathered up a bunch of pictures I had taken recently of the kiddos. I used some outdoor Mod Podge to attach photos that I printed out on my printer.
I gave the whole thing a few shots of Mod Podge Acrylic spray. I did my best to prevent water damage from happening.
As I added the photos around the pot they didn’t line up completely because the pot is obviously rounded. To hide the unevenness, I added some ribbon to the top and bottom of the photos. Then I finished things off with some sweet little bows.
Awe aren’t they precious? Ok, I may be biased!
Again, because I need to ship this across the country I couldn’t add a real plant. So I decided to include some gardening gloves and seed packets inside the flower pot.
I love how it turned out and it should be arriving at my Mother In Law’s house in a couple days. I hope she loves it as much as I do!
