If you want to add some plants or flowers to a child's room, you can put them in traditional flowerpots or maybe paint them to make them match the décor. Or, you can use some simple DIY skills to create unique flowerpots that really stand out in the child's room.
Stuffed Animal Pots
One way to create unique flowerpots is to take a boring flowerpot and add something to it to make it different. For a child's room, you can't go wrong with stuffed animals. Choose a stuffed animal that you know your children will like. If they love bears, choose a bear. Since the stuffed animal is the most important part, choose that first. You want one that sits. Once you have your animal, find a flowerpot that fits against the stuffed animal's belly to see how well the arms and legs hug the flowerpot.
To make the stuffed animal flowerpot all you have to do is glue the hands to the pot like the stuffed animal is hugging it. Use super glue.
Building Brick Flower Pot
Another way to create unique flowerpots is to make one yourself. For a child's room, make a flowerpot out of a favorite toy. One of the easiest, and most fun, toys to use are building bricks. Even adults have fun playing with these. Once finished building, you will have a neat flowerpot.
Purchase a cheap flowerpot from your local dollar store. It doesn't have to be pretty because it will be covered. Just make sure it is functional, such as having drain holes if you plan to plant real flowers. Take your building blocks and make a box around the flowerpot. Build up until you go past the top of the pot. A few rows past the top is plenty.
Sand Bucket Flower Pot
One more way to create unique flowerpots is to use an object meant for a different purpose. For a child's room, why not use a sand bucket? This is a great choice if your child loves the beach. You don't even need any DIY skills for this idea. Go to the store and buy one of those sand buckets with the shovel attached to the handle. That's it. The shovel acts like extra decoration.
If you want to plant real flowers in the sand bucket then you need to use some DIY skills. Drill a few holes in the sides of the sand bucket as close to the bottom as you can.
These simple flowerpots will liven up your children's rooms. The hardest part will be getting your kids to remember to water the plants. For more ideas, look at sites such as http://www.skystonemall.com/.Share
