Hand Painted Pots starts off our terra cotta pot week!

Lets go back last fall. When all the summer stuff is on sale. I was at shopko. Ran into an aisle of terra cotta pots. On sale…..On CLEARANCE. (One of my favorite words).
That is 24 cents. Needless to say….I bought a ton!! And since it was almost winter, in my garage they sat. My husband could not believe I bought all these pots….and I told him I would use them…ALL–and he said I wouldn’t. So this week is prove my husband wrong week (also know as terra cotta pot week!)
Our first craft is just paint. simple ole paint makes everything cuter!
I let my kids paint these ones…(my sons has little spiders around the base and more than one time I have jumped because they really look like spiders.)  I took them to the store and let them pick out what kind of seeds they wanted, then we planted it and had a little lesson on how seeds grow. Now they are entirely resposible for watering and taking care of their flowers. 
And they aren’t just for flowers….I also painted a fall one to hold up my harvest sign:

And just to add some color to my door step:
I am such a good gardener..look at those beautiful flowers!!
oh, and that pretty brown grass!
Four pots down. 12 to go.
