We have made sure to recycle an empty container (we used a hot chocolate container) to create these flower pots. Not only bringing nature into the house, also saving the environment one flower pot at a time!

These flower pots are not only filled with flowers, but decorated with flowers too! Home made flowers!

A fun way to celebrate nature, or give as a gift to mom or a teacher.

Step by Step Instructions for our Flower Pot Crafts for Kids

These flower pot crafts for kids are great for...

  • Make one and fill it with mom's favorite plant for Mother's Day.
  • Celebrate spring and use these to start some of your summer garden plants. Simply transfer them into the garden when the weather is right.
  • Show you teacher how special he/she is with a home-made flower pot filled with a beautiful plant for their desk.

Step #1:

Chose the base color of your flower pot crafts for kids - we chose a nice, bright yellow. Paint the entire container with the chosen paint. Set it aside to dry completely.

Step #2:

Cut out a variety of different flowers - in all kinds of shapes and sizes. If you are not able to cut freehand like we did, just draw a bunch on the construction paper with a pencil and cut them out. 

You will want enough flowers to nicely cover your pot with them.

Step #3:

Place a dot of glue into the center of each flower and glue a pom pom in place. You can use orange, yellow and white pom poms.

Step #4:

Bend the leaves of one of your flowers around  the pom poms. Hold it in place for a few seconds. Once you let go this will give your flowers a little bend and make them stand out on the flower pot.

Step #5:

Repeat this same process for each of your flowers, it's a little bit time consuming but the end result is totally worth it.

Step #5:

Glue all the flowers onto your flower pot. All you need is a bit of glue on the back of the flower behind the pom pom. Glue them all around and fill up the pot. 

Grab some soil and your favorite plant and fill up these flower pot crafts for kids!
