"Show and Tell Friday" ~ Craft Day

Good afternoon everyone! Today I am joining Cindy for Show and Tell Friday.

I have a little Spring-time craft to share with you.

First of all, let me say that I love little clay pots because you can do so much with them! I started off with a plain clay pot. I spray painted it white and glued in a piece of florist foam. Then I dabbed on aqua paint with some scrunched-up Glad wrap. I let that dry and then dabbed on pink paint with scrunched-up Glad wrap. I let it dry and then went over it with dabs of white paint, using again, scrunched-up Glad wrap. This gives the pot an antiqued look.Then I glued in Spanish moss to look like a bird's nest.Next, I glued in flowers and tied on a sheer ribbon. Lastly, I glued in three little eggs. This is what it looks like with a little birdie in my livingroom.




I also did a rose pot; again spray painting the pot white. Glued in Spanish moss, leaves, and a rose.I glued on some lace, and here it is in the bathroom.
It's easy and cute for Spring-time decor. Have a lovely day everyone. Be sure to check out all the other participants at Cindy's. Click on the link to go there. http://romantichome.blogspot.com/

I love this idea. Bird's nests and eggs give me hope that spring will eventually get here. I am so ready for springtime touches, and this will be the perfect way to start.

Nice to meet you! I will stop back in when the pictures are showing up better.

I Love what you have done with simple clay pots. They are so versatile and can be made into MANY wonderful crafty items. Sometimes we actually plant flowers in them too:)

Just popped in from English Teacup, and wanted to say how much I enjoyed your lovely blog! The little flower pots would make a great mother's day gift; I may have to borrow the idea. :)
