I made these watermelon flower pots as examples for my art students this week, and enjoyed it so much - I wanted to blog about it! The best part about these adorable flower pots, is that you can design a whole set of them as different fruits a veggies (spotted mushroom, strawberry, lemon slice, etc.)
To make your own watermelon flower pots you will need;
- Terracotta Clay Pots (your choice of size)
- Acrylic Paints
- Paint Brushes
Start with clean, dry clay pot and grip it from the inside. Paint the larger part of the surface bright pink as shown. I added two coats - one after the other - to make sure the color was vibrant.
Next, paint the rim of the flower pot light green. Once dry, add some squiggly lines of dark green paint to mimic the rind of a watermelon.
Lastly, add some seeds using a small brush and black paint.
Use your painted flower pot as a display piece (perfect for art supplies!) or a lovely little plant.
