I absolutely love these chalkboard flower pots. They’re easy to make and a great kid-friendly activity for any summer day! (If my two-year-old son can help, anyone can!)
To make your own, gather the following supplies:
- Clay flower pots (with bottoms)
- Acrylic paint
- Chalkboard paint
- Flowers and Potting soil
Step One: Dust off your flower pots and apply one coat of paint. (If you like the look of the flower pots I made, only paint the bottom dish and the top edge of the pot.) Make sure to paint about 1.5-inches down the inside of the pot as well. Once dry, apply a second coat.
Step Two: Paint the remainder of your pot with chalkboard paint. Each chalkboard paint brand is a little different, so be sure to read and follow instructions carefully. (Mine required two coats.)
Let the paint dry (the paint I used required 24-hours of dry time) then reassemble the pots.
Step Three: Gather your potting soil and flowers.
Plant your chosen flowers inside each pot.
Step Four: Now decorate the chalkboard section with chalk!
These pots are so adorable and you can change their appearance daily if you like! They make great Mother’s Day gifts and are a fun craft for any child!
