With the first days of spring upon us now, I’m dreaming of bright flowers, vibrant greens, and lots of colors. These Spring Chick Planters are both a fun craft and a great way to bring some of those bright colors inside.
Meant as a diy succulents planter, these Spring Chick Planters use mini pots that would also be great for small groups of flowers. Maybe your little one wants to get their hands dirty, because what little one doesn’t? These Spring Chick Planters would be a great beginner garden project from crafting the pots to watching their little sprouts grow. Be sure to also check our Paint Splatter Flower Pots as another fun option!
Now, for the supplies. To make your own Spring Chick Planters you will need mini terracotta pots, paint and paintbrush, feathers, scissors, glue, cardstock, and a black paint pen. If the eyes aren’t coming out quite how you’d like, however, you could always use googly eyes to make it easier. A kids crafter does love their googly eyes!
Spring Chick Succulent Planters
- mini terracotta pots
- acrylic paint – blue, orange, yellow
- feathers in coordinating colors
- googly eyes or black paint pen
Paint the terracotta pots and allow them to dry completely.
Glue feathers on the side of the terracotta pots and on the top rim of the pot.
Use a pencil to draw on eyes, once you are satisfied with how they look, trace over them with a black paint pen. Or, if you are letting the little ones do every step themselves, googly eyes would be great!
Cut a diamond shape from cardstock and fold it in half to create a bird beak. Glue the diamond shape (beak) onto the front of the pot.
Carefully fill the terracotta pot with soil to avoid getting dirt in the feathers and then plant your succulents inside.
Succulent Care Tip: To water your plant, soak the soil each time it’s become completely dry. Allow excess water to drain out of the bottom. Do not allow the plant to soak in a pool of water all day or night. Once the soil dries out, you may soak the plant again.
