To continue our weeklong celebration of Earth Day, today we are sharing with you an eco friendly project. Check out these Monogram Pots. How cute are they? Not only are they cute, they make a great Mother’s Day present. Kim from The Celebration Shoppe had helped her little one make these pots. These pots were made using Mod Podge washout and Apple Barrel paints. After her son finished decorating the pots, he planted some flowers inside. What a perfect kid’s craft for them to make for Mother’s Day. Not only does this make a great Mother’s Day gift, but also it is an overall great spring craft. Click here to find all the supplies used to create this project, along with their instructions. Enjoy!
