Guess What Makes These Terra-cotta Pots so Cute? False Eyelashes!!!!!
I had some gifts to make for a women's group and wanted to bring in gardening and women. So I purchased terra-cotta pots with the saucers, garden gloves and seed packets along with false eyelashes to put these themes together. I had the paint, ribbon and flowers.
I first painted the the terra cotta pots in white but left the inside unpainted just for contrast.
Taking tweezers, I removed each eyelash along with its glue line and stuck them on resembling closed eyes!
I then squeezed a little pink paint on a paper plate and used my thumb to put blush on their cheeks and used a sharpie to draw a smile.
I took a pair of garden gloves and rolled them up and placed 2 seed packs inside each pot then inserted the rolled gloves.
Once seeds and gloves were placed in pots I turned the saucer upside down as a hat. I took ribbon placing it under pot and bringing it up and tying it into a knot on top to keep the "hat" in place. Hot glued a big flower on top all ready to gift.
What I especially like is once the items are removed from the pot, you turn the hat over and place the pot on top of the saucer. That's when you really notice the contrast of the unpainted interior. (In previous picture). can be placed near the sink to hold rings or place a small plant. These are small 2-3 inch pots.
