If your kids love unicorns – and plants – this is the perfect craft for them. Use any pot or container you like and any colours and decorations you have on hand to create your own unique unicorn pots.
We asked Kidspot reader Katie and her gorgeous girls Ruby and Ella to create the project so we can follow along at home. They have provided step-by-step instructions plus a video below, on how to make your own unicorn plant pots.
They found that glue wasn’t the best for sticking the decorations to the painted pots and suggested a cold or hot glue gun might work better.
You will need:
- 4 Resene test pots – we used:
- Terracotta pot (and saucer to go underneath)
- Paper flowers or other decorations of your choice
- Glitter foam sheets for the horn
- PVA glue or hot glue gun
- Potting mix
- Succulents or other plants
Check out the video below of Ruby and Ella showing you how they decorated their pots
Step-by-step instructions to paint and decorate your pot
Cut out a triangle shape from the glitter foam and gather up your other decorations ready to go.
Stick the horn and decorations on to the pots. We used PVA glue and needed to wait for the glue to dry before they stuck well – a peg or clip to hold them on while the PVA dried would be handy. Otherwise a hot glue gun will do the trick straight away!
Once your unicorn horn and flowers are dried, fill the pot with potting mix and get planting. Proudly display your pot or it would make a lovely gift – and don’t forget to water your plant!
