BUTTERFLY FLOWER POT

DSC_0433This is a quick little present we put together for Corey’s parents birthday’s (which just so happen to be in the same week), but would make a great Mother’s Day present too. We were short on money, and time, so after a little brainstorming and pinteresting, this is what I came up with.

We already had the pot, the paint, and the baby feet, so all we had to buy was the plant ($5 at Publix). The first thing I did was paint the pot white. Then, we decided on a few colors and started painting the baby’s feet (AFTER we made sure the paint was water based and non-toxic). When it was dry I went back in and drew in the body and wings, and filled it in with a sharpie.

For my letters, I used stickers as my template. I just stuck them on, traced around the letters in pencil, peeled off the stickers, and I was left with a perfect guide to paint.
