I found these itty bitty terracotta pots at the Dollar Tree about a month ago. I had no clue what I was going to do with them. I tend to buy things because they are cute and cheap. I am glad I did buy them because they were perfect for this project!
I also had bought these styrofoam 2" balls there for another project that I never got around to. They just happened to fit perfectly in the tiny terracotta pots
I then had these green wooden sticks that somebody was giving away for free at work. I think they might have been used for planters? They were perfect for my project. I just pushed the stick into the styrofoam to create the stem.
I used my Cricut to cut out the flowers for the pictures, you could probably find a flower pattern or use stencils to create a flower if you don't have a die cut machine.
Once you have your picture glue to the flower you can take glue the flower to the stem (stick).
I then used some basket box and bag shred from the Dollar Tree to cover up the styrofoam ball.
Once you have you that all done you can decorate the terracotta plant however you want. I used a little Kraft paper and some ribbon for mine.
I think these would also be cute for a wedding shower, you can use the groom and bride's engagement picture. Or maybe for a party you can use them at table cards. The possibilities are endless. I hope the moms in my life like it!
Do you have any special projects you are working on for the moms in your life?
