I love to paint, however I’m no Picasso. I have found an easy way to make fun looking designs that don’t require any talent at all. Even kids can make these and get beautiful results. This is the perfect project to keep your kids busy over spring break! This DIY kids painted flower pot project will be a huge hit.

Supplies Needed for DIY Kids Painted Flower Pot Project
A variety of household items to make circles – I used a glue stick cap and a paint brush handle.
How to Make DIY Kids Painted Flower Pot
First I looked around my house to find small circular items that I could dip in paint to make circles on the pot.
I started by using the cap of a glue stick to make random circles in two shades of blue on the pot. I dipped the cap in paint each time I made a circle. Be careful not to get too much paint or it will drop.
Using the handle of a paintbrush, I added random navy, teal, and white dots between the circles.
After the large circles were dry, I added navy dots to the centers of all of the circles.
Paint the flower pot rim. When the paint is dry, add dots to the rim using a paintbrush handle.
After the paint is dry, spray your pot with two coats of acrylic sealer. You’re ready to use the painted flower pot for a spring flower or to hold markers and pens in your craft room.
Experiment with applying paint using different objects, and make your own designs with different colors. This will keep the kids busy, but you might want to paint too!
