Kids craft ideas. A Small Flowerpot


Kids are fond of making original things with their own hands. This kids craft idea will certainly appeal to them as it's easy to make — medium skill level is required.

What You Need: an empty jar from vitamins or from cream, a ribbon, a paper strip in size of the jar, and unusually downy yarn. We have taken the yarn «Samba» YarnArt, but the other downy yarn with an unusual texture can be used as well.

Cut out some ribbons in length of the jar diameter. The jar is glued around with white paper strip.

When it has dried a bit, spread glue on the paper surface of the jar and start winding the yarn, tightly putting the yarn. Carefully press the yarn end.

The decorative jar is ready. It can be used as a pot for small plants, e.g. a cactus (then, you should make a hole in the bottom) or as a flower vase.

Now you are to prepare flowers. We've taken small chrysanthemums.

Inside the jar we've put floral oasis-sponge due to which the flowers will remain fresh for several days. The floral sponge can be substituted for a lump of wet cotton-wool, but in this case it'll be more difficult to insert the flowers.
Cut a piece of sponge of the needed size, soak it in water for a couple of minutes.

On placing the sponge inside the pot, carefully insert the flowers into it, putting them evenly so as to hide all the inner parts of the pot.
