Flower Pot Crafting Part 1

What do you do on a hot Sunday afternoon… you create. I really wanted to make some yard art so here is what I am working on.

Laying the foundation.

We are making a knome mushroom house. Keep in mind these are the first stages so they are rough.

I am using a 10 inch flower pot and a drain pan large enough to extend out past the pot. You can get these from Michael’s or any garden supply.

Paint the pot with your desired base coat using either spray acrylic or you can hand paint like I am doing with artist acrylics. For the dots you can use any circular object and dip into the color you desire and use a rocking motion to make sure it makes a complete ring. Fill in with your artist brush to complete circle.

Make sure you fill in dots a second time allowing for drying time in between.

I have added the door and a knome beside the door. Continue to layer on paint until you are satisfied.

Sorry that is all for today but keep checking back for the final product.

I love art, especially photography and painting. My next addition is crafts or primarily needlecrafts. And as if that was not enough, I am a genealogist.
