A nifty gift

The next time you are looking to make a gift for someone that has a touch of sentimental charm, try making finger-painted flowerpots containing some of your favorite cooking herbs.  I made these for Mother’s day and they were a hit! 

Here’s a list of the materials needed for this project:

  1. Terra cotta flower pots
  2. Spray paint primer
  3. Finger Paints
  4. Potting soil
  5. A mix of your favorite herbs
Simply spray the pots with the white primer and let dry.  I had my little one finger paint the outside of the pots, but if you don’t have a little one of your own, use your own finger-painting abilities.  Or, you could get creative, and paint something interesting with a brush.  Let dry.  Next, fill the pots with potting soil, and plant herbs.  Voila!  Enjoy!
