Today we decided to paint silly terra cotta pots for a few plants that I found on clearance at Walmart. If there is a mess involved my kids are there too, so we had a fun time making these.

Time: 30Minutes Cost: $20.00 Difficulty: Easy

I started by painting the pot all white, you can leave it this way or add other designs.

Then I pained the bottom of each one a different color. I made a mouth out of a piece of paper and traced it on the pot.

Next I used paint to fill it in. After that I dipped the pencil eraser in the black paint to make the eyes.

We let everything dry and then dressed them up with a little bit of hair. The kids loved this part!

How fun is this! Enjoy!
