Easter Craft: Flower Basket

Flower Basket

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

As this pretty flowerpot proves, a traditional basket isn't the only container that can hold Easter treasures.

Materials

  • Terra-cotta flowerpot
  • Acrylic paint
  • Puff Paint
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Large lollipop
  • Tape
  • Pen

Instructions

  1. Paint the pot with nontoxic acrylic paints. Once it has dried, add an Easter greeting with puffy paint.
  2. For the flower, cut out some paper petals and tape them to the back of an oversize lollipop, wrap the lollipop stick with green paper to make a stem, then plant it in the pot.
  3. To personalize the pot, write the person's name on a simple green construction paper leaf or paint their name on the flowerpot.

Tips:

To complete the flower theme, fill the "Easter pot" with gummy worms, ladybug stickers, candy eggs and butterfly barrettes.
