Once a year (usually in Jan.) me and a handful of my high school friends gather at my friend Ryan's parent's house to craft in his honor. Ryan passed away 9 years ago and yearly his parents host this event. We meet, chat, eat, drink, craft and share memories followed by a visit to the grave site. This year the craft was painting pottery and planting them with pansies. I love how one person could inspire so many of us to maintain that friendship that we may have otherwise drifted from.

Supplies you will need are...

  • Imagination
  • Clay pot
  • Craft paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Clear pot sealant
  • Glue
  • Decorative beads or stones etc.
  • Plants
  • Beer (21 and older adults only)
  • Food
First you paint the clay pot in any color scheme that suits your fancy. Then when the paint in dry you spray it with a clear sealant to help seal the paint. This will also ensure that the paint does not peal in the sun. Then you can glue decorative rocks or beads if you are so inclined and then you can plant inside. Simple, fun and a great project to even involve the little ones. If you have a cool DIY pot project that you have done then feel free to share. I am curious to see what you have done.
