My little Black Thumb

I can grow just about anything outside, but when it comes to indoor plants it’s a whole different story. So I came up with a solution. I certainly cannot kill this one !

So I found this awesome plastic pot in my shed that was dis regarded. The ironic thing about this pot was my husband bought me flowers one Valentines Day that use to hold potted  flowers, and guess what? They died. Big surprise! So this was just perfect!

So now  I just  needed some rocks, I put my son to work and asked him to go down to our creek and pick out smooth flat rocks for this project. He came back with so many to choose from. When I decided on the ones I wanted I washed them up and let them dry.

I dragged out my craft paints and I ended up having alot of shades of green, and that was the look I was going for so I went to work. Thank goodness I had white paint too because I needed that as well.

I painted each one of the rocks solid colors and waited for them to dry. Then I started decorating with the white paint.

It took only about an hour for the paint to dry after the white detail. I made different detail on the rocks as you can see.

So I wanted the bottom to look like sand but I did not have sand,  what I did have was some burlap that contained this gold thread weave through it.  I stuffed the bottom of the  flower-pot with plastic bags and covered it with the burlap.

I used one of my FAVORITE  TOOLS, the glue gun and glued down the rocks lightly just to make sure they did not move  around.

Well I am pretty happy  on how this project turned out. This was a very easy kid friendly project! I hope you enjoyed my blog! Because I enjoyed telling you !

  2. That alone is worth making it for; the fact you can’t kill it is then a bonus. LOL
