Fun Flower Pots

These were so much fun to do! I think someone could have a lot of fun with this craft as a Girl Scouts project for Mother's Day.

These are all beautiful. I love the last one best too only because I love those little flowers. Aren't they called Johnny Jump Ups??? You did a great rendition of them. My kids have done Mothers Day pots for me, but they never looked that good! ha Yes, I still loved them. ha Great job! ~Anj

Yes, I think Johnny Jump Ups or violas? I love pansies and violas -- they're so sweet and old fashioned.

These were fun especially because I wasn't aiming for any kind of perfection. What I wanted was whimsy and color for the steps leading up my front porch. My house is rather colorless, being cream trimmed with white, with white doors. So I'm desperate for color out there. I made the polka dots with a q-tip, btw.

Ah yes, don't we all love the things our kids made for us? They were gifts from our kids' hearts and the kids were so proud of themselves and eager to please us.
