    How sweet and adorable are these mini flower pots? You can have so much fun making these. Decorate them with washi tape and markers, then add in a few small flowers. This is the perfect craft for spring and summer and a great way to encourage your kids to help in the garden.

    After you conquer washi tape, graduate to painted flower pots!

    Next, add markers to your flower pots. We decorated with flowers and fun mini designs. Using permanent markers will help the color stay on the pot even if it gets wet from the plant.

    Plant Your Flowers

     Marie LeBaron

    Now that your pots are decorated, you can plant your flowers.

    Add some soil to your pots. Break off a small piece of your plant and place into the soil. Press them down, so they are filled all in.

    These mini flower pots are ready for a little watering, but not too much! You can over-water them very easily, so you have to be careful.

    Your mini planters are now ready to display! Place the pots indoors on top of a small clay pot liner, or you can leave them out on your porch or in a small garden.
