Paint a Stars and Stripes Planter
Summer is a great time to plant flowers and spend time in the garden. This summer, give your garden some patriotic punch with a red, white and blue planter for Fourth of July. This is a project you and your child can have a blast doing together, outside on a warm day.
What You Need:
- 1 plain 10-12” round flower pot (either terra cotta or plastic works for this project)
- Acrylic Paint in red, white, and blue (Note: this water-soluble paint is available at craft stores. Make sure you check for the right kind of paint to go with the material of your pot. Most stores sell specialized paints that work especially well on either plastic or clay).
- Three brushes, one for each color
- 3x5” Index card
- Scissors or hobby knife (X-Acto brand words best)
