Let’s decorate some peat pots….

Peat pot decorated for spring and Easter

…. she said. Me. I said that. Tiffany, Melanie and I were going to have a craft night and that’s what I wanted to do. Decorate peat pots. Tiff said, Huh? Melanie said, Oh-Kaaay… They both said, Show me. I showed them some pictures and they were ready to go. Karla at Karla’s Cottage had made some pretty ones. So we got started. I drew a blank. Melanie’s were really cute. Tiffany’s were adorable and she showed them on her blog,  The Cranky Queen. As a matter of fact, she’s showing some today. I had no idea we were thinking the same thing. I’m not copying! I promise! LOL

My pots? Enh. Cute, but….. Here’s the first one.

Not a very good angle. You can’t see the bunny and flower pin in the grass. This one was just OK. Not very imaginative or anything. 

#2. Getting a little better:

I put the paper on and the ribbon with the Alice In Wonderland title from an old book. Glued the hat (which had previously been made into a pin) on the side. Sat a vintage, chalk rabbit and some flowers in old, Easter grass and called her done.

A couple of weeks passed and I got in the mood to try again. Here’s what I came up with this time:

The glitter pot is probably my favorite. I put glitter in a bowl, sprayed glue on the pot, then rolled the pot in the glitter.  And then I made this last one. I’m really thinking spring and Easter with these. This one is so simple looking, but took the longest to make.

  1. Got to get a little stack of peat pots to decorate now! How perfect for little Easter baskets?!!

  2. I love the glittery one and the pink one and the flowers are fab…gotta borrow that little cutter! The ducks are too cute. YOU DID GOOD GAL PAL…it might be a craft night this week. Tiff

  3. hey Wanda, thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting. I adore the glittered pot with the duck. Rarely do I ever make what it is that I started out to make. It usually takes several iterations before I get something I really love but the trying is so much fun, Isn’t it?

  4. Hi Wanda…..thanks for stopping by our blog! I was scrolling down thru your projects and i too thought that article on the baseball skin flowers was cool. As i’ve been collecting baseballs the i kept wondering how i was going to get them to be flat also—–LOVE your idea (happy accident) about making them into a basket instead!! I think you should submit that!

  5. Such cute ideas – LOVE your blog! Great inspiration!!
    I’ve been wanting to make covered pots but haven’t got around to it like so many other projects!

  6. These are really, really cute. I love them all. I like to make several projects when I come up with an idea too. It gives me a chance to try everything but not on one piece, which can be a disaster. These are great! Thanks for stopping by my place and entering giveaway. The lambs are made with cinnamon and modge podge. They were molded likely with a candy mold. Aren’t they great? A prim artist friends sells them locally. I had to share!

  7. What do ya mean they aren’t good? I think they’re adorable. You could easily change out the bunny and hat to fit with any season or decor. I really like the little flowers and trim on the third one. So many possibilities here… I’d be making them in my sleep.
    Yes, I think the sales are better this time of year, so many people cleaning out from the long cold winter.
