I love going to my friend Michelle’s house. We have a once a month lunch date where we get together and make something that we have found on Pinterest. We don’t use instructions, we just kind of look at the picture and just go with it. We found a really cool Valentine pot that we decided to turn into a Spring Word Pot.

How to Create a Spring Word Pot

Not everything on Pinterest has instructions you know :)

When we first saw this cute little craft on Pinterest, it started out as a Valentine pot. We brainstormed and thought that we can make these for any occasion. They look beautiful and really make a room come alive.

While we were making these, we were just looking through all her little buttons and doo dads and came across this gorgeous little bird.

He just says Spring to me. He is SO cute! I also added a gorgeous big button to the top of my word pot.

My other two favorite parts of this word pot are the words — Faith and Grace.

Those two words remind me everyday to trust in God, even when I make horrible mistakes and think He won’t love me anymore. He has grace for me even when I make big booboos :)

My daughter created one too and it turned out beautiful!

Here is how you can make your own Spring Word Pot. It is really easy and lots of fun!

Spring Word Pot

Supplies Needed:

  • Pot
  • Paint
  • Decorations and doo dads
  • dowel rod
  • Jewelry wire in a color that you like
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Styrofoam Ball
  • cotton for filling pot
  • Moss
  • glue stick
  • ribbon

Directions

  1. Take your colored paint and paint your pot inside and out. Let it dry.
  2. Fit your styrofoam ball into the bottom of the pot. Make sure that it is stuck in their firmly.
  3. Paint your dowel rod the color that you want. You will want to cut it down to fit the size of your pot. We used 1 long dowel rod and cut it into 4 pieces.
  4. Once your pot is dry, wrap it with a ribbon. You can add a bow if you want (we did ours separate from the ribbon and glued it on in place).
  5. Take the dowel rod and place it in the pot, being sure to stick it down in the styrofoam.
  6. Decorate the pot with stickers, trinkets, or whatever you would like.
  7. Fill the pot with the cotton first, and then place the moss all around the top of the cotton, or you can do it like my daughter did and leave the moss off — totally up to you!
  8. Now you can use your decorative scrapbook scissors and cut your papers to the desired length. Mine started out long, but then I trimmed them down to fit the pot. As you are making it, you will begin to see it take shape as you are doing it. Just decrease the sizes as you go up. I made mine wide — folded it over and then cut it so that when you are looking from both sides, you will see the design and not white on one side and designed on the other.
  9. Take your wire and begin to criss cross it from the front and back to hold your paper pieces in place. Make sure you make it long enough to go over each piece you use.
  10. Finish your pot off by adding words, embellishment’s, and a topper — like a heart or something.
