I always associate Mother’s Day with flowers. I am pretty sure that every year I give my mom flowers or a plant of some sort. This year was no different! I embellished regular terra-cotta pots with paint, pictures, stickers and gems and ended up with snazzy pots for my sisters and mom!
First, I painted the pots with a base layer of white, to help the teal paint go on smooth.
While I waited for the paint to dry, I cut out pictures and glued them onto card stock with spray adhesive.
Then, I busted out the mod podge! I swear when I get started with that stuff I go crazy and try to mod podge everything. First I put on a white doily and then the pictures. The pictures were tacky glued and mod podged onto the pots.
When everything was dry and secure, I embellished the pots more with stickers, gems and ribbon.
I filled my mother’s pot with a Bleeding Heart plant. I just love those and their pretty heart-shaped flowers.
For my sisters I gave them each a Lilly. So fragrant and bright!
The embellished flower pots turned out really cute, all of the mothers liked seeing their sweeties on their gift. Now I just need to make myself one! Hope you had a great mother’s day!
