Flower pot ( I made it Myself Monday) with Alex

First of all, hope on over to You had be at Craft and check out the entries for Alex's first I made it myself Mondays!.


I made this cute little flower pot for Mother's Day for My Great Grandson's (yep, that's Bentley in the flower)Mom.
I started out by spray painting the pot and saucer (not in pic) with oil rubbed bronze,let it dry and added cream colored fleck to the pot and saucer using a toothbrush.
The flower was made using sizzix flower die and I sprayed it wirh blue sky glimmer mist, the stem with olive GM. I printed out the flower and punched it out using a 1 3/4 scalloped punch for Stampin Up, adhered it to the center using zip dry glue, added a resin lady bug to the stem of the flower, printed out the sentiment and attached it to a small piece of wood.
to get the flower to stand yup, I used floral wire and cut wooden stick to size and stuck it in some clay that I put in the pot, topped it off with some peat moss. She loved it!!!
