There seems to be a theme here at Busy Hands..we keep making flower pots! 'Tis the season for flowers and pots and Moms...... We have also been on a reusing recycleables kick lately. We utilized half of a milk jug, scrap fabric, glue, a paint brush, a strip of felt, and some Mod Podge.
We cut pieces of fabric and brushed glue all over the sides of the jug. Then, my young one created a fabric collage.
He helped me put on the felt strip around the edges after we brushed the area generously with our glue. Then, we allowed everything to dry completely.
We brushed on a coat of Mod Podge to seal our pot decor and let that dry. He went to the garden and filled the pot with dirt and planted some lettuce seeds for me. Thanks, Jared. :)
Enjoy this project. It is a great way to reuse, create a colorful collage, and give a lovely gift to someone you really love. Happy Mother's Day!
