all you need are some pots, paints, brushes and we used a spray sealant to try to protect the pots from water.

i love using ice cube trays as paint trays instead, as they don’t tip over easily and the paints can be mixed well in the deep slots. my kids often paint outside as the tidying up is so much easier. plus, if they get paint all over it’s not a big deal!

i love how carefree the kids are when painting. they do not get inhibited with concerns about what other’s may think of their creations. they just create completely in the moment, enjoying the paint and colours, but most importantly the process.

happy painting and planting to you!

    Awww, these flower pots are so adorable! I love painted flower pots too because they’re all colourful and then the flowers bloom and they’re SUPER colourful.

    I like to put spider plants in painted flower pots because then the “artwork” is REALLY showcased against the background of a simple green.

    Thanks for sharing! Wishing you a lovely weekend.
    xoxo
