It's a fun easy and inexpensive project. Before painting I like to apply a layer of gesso even though the acrylic paint has pretty good coverage. The gesso just makes the application of paint easier and apply more evenly.
I taped off the bottom to allow for nice clean lines. And then with permanent marker, Alex decorated the flower pots and chose begonias for planting.
I found the adorable music box at Chapters. Alex's music teacher had taught the class the words to what a wonderful world this year. It was a perfect find, and addition, to our thank you gift.
This is definitely a quick and easy little gift to say thank you to someone special in your life or for no other reason than to bring a bit of colour and happiness to their day xx
