Make these pots for Mother's Day or other gift occasions. They make great housewarming or welcome gifts for new neighbors.
This is a suitable project for teens and tweens old enough to wield a glue gun.
I've decorated the pot with a red dyed rosette of twine. You could add leaves if you like.
Other suggestions for decorating the pot:
• Silk flowers on the sides;
• Decorative buttons;
• Tiny readymade satin rosettes;
• Designs made with Elmer's glue and then covered with glitter (be sure to let one side dry before moving on and lay the pot on its side while drying); or
• Old pieces of jewelry.
Here are the directions for a Jute Decorated Flower Pot.
