2. Paint

Next, using your paint and foam brush, paint the flower pot on the outside. You may need two coats to get your desired color since the pot absorbs some of the paint. Let your flower pot dry completely before moving on to the next step.

3. Make the handprint

Once your pot is dry – chose a coordinating color and paint your kiddo’s hand and carefully place it on your flower pot and pull it away to create an adorable handprint.

See…super cute! I then took a chalk pen and wrote “mom” on the rim of the flower pot. You could use paint if you’re really artsy, a marker, or just leave it blank. Totally up to you!

I love chalk pens because you can erase and start over if you mess up! I need a little forgiveness when it comes to these kinds of things. I blame it on being left-handed. It really is a right-handed world! haha!

To make this Mother’s Day flower pot extra special,  make a little flower cut out with fancy scrapbook paper and place your sweet child’s face right in the middle, attach with a hot glue gun to a bamboo stick or flower stake and stick it right in the flower pot. So. Very. Cute!

You can also use a paper plate or some green paper and white paper to create the flower in the middle! This is a fun way for little hands to work on scissor cutting skills, too! In the center of the flower, put a cute little picture!

  1. How do you make it so the paint doesn’t bleed off after you water the plant? I even used clay pot sealer.

  2. What size pots should I buy? I work with 2 year olds?

  3. Do you have to seal it. After all is done.?

  4. What a fun craft for kids this Mother’s Day! Just wanted to let you that I featured your post on my blog if you’d like to share it. Happy May!

  5. Help me I am wondering if you can help me with a project. I want to try taking a flower pot and spray painting it with glow-in-the-dark paint but then put handprints on the pot with a different glow-in-the-dark paint. Do you think this would be possible.
