personalized foam flower pots

Mom can’t resist a handmade gift and we’ve got one she’ll really love! Decorate the outside of this lovely little pot with paint and her favorite photos. Then, we’ll show you how to “grow” some glittery foam flowers to fill it. Adorable!
Step 1
You’ll need some of Mom’s favorite photos for this project! Print out wallet-sized photographs and trim each one down, removing any white bordering the photos. 
Step 2
Paint the outside of your pot with Mom’s favorite colors. Use one color for the pot and a contrasting color for its rim and then let the paint dry completely. If you need to, add another coat or two to make sure the paint coverage is even. Always let your paint dry between coats. 
Step 3
Use a foam brush to paint the backs of the photos with white glue and then press them onto the pot and smooth each surface with your fingers. 
Step 4
Take a minute to check your photos to make sure all the corners and edges are completely glued down. Let the glue dry. 
Step 5
Peel the backing from your glittery flower stickers and attach a foam craft stick to each one, as if it were a stem. 
Step 6
All that’s left to do is to place the craft stick “stems” into the pot and arrange your flowers nicely. Mom will be so impressed!
