By: Melony Bradley

Add a touch of fun to your garden. Colorful Pea Pots from Melony Bradley are inexpensive and so fun to make. Garden craft ideas don't more unique than this! Cut and paint foil and add it to your pot - it's a cheap and easy embellishment.

Materials:

  • Jiffy Strips
  • Scissors
  • Jacquard's Neopaque Paints
  • Pinata Inks
  • Metal foil sheets
  • Sizzix dies
  • BigShot machine

Instructions:

  1. I have seen some really cool project ideas for using garden peat pots. I have been wanting to play with them for some time. When I visited Lowes yesterday and found these little cuties, it blew my mind that I could buy sixteen of them for $2.11 including Mississippi sales tax! What??
     
  2. It all starts with these Jiffy Strips....

  3. Of course, they come in linked rows so you have to cut them apart with scissors, easy enough....

  4. I love the green craft look of the pots unpainted but I knew I wanted to try and make some really colorful favors perfect for Spring. I painted them with Jacquard's Neopaque paints.

  5. I chose the brightest happiest Spring palette I had in my stash.
     
  6. To embellish, I decided to play with my collection of Pinata inks. A couple of weeks ago, I used these on metal foil sheet die cuts and loved the result. So here I go again. These are the Sizzix dies I chose. They are all layered flower dies.

  7. So here I go die cutting my metal foil sheets with my BigShot machine.

  8. As far as metal foil sheets go, I have to give a big shout out to Walnut Hollow's Be Creative Metal Line, It comes in metallic colors and is very easy to die cut and/or emboss in different patterns.
     
  9. Now, the REAL fun begins. I dropped various colors of pinata inks on my die cut foil flowers.

  10. I either used a paint brush to spread the ink around or a heat tool, to blend colors together.

  12. Once I had the color combos I liked, I used various embellishments for the center and glued all to the front of the peat pots with tacky glue.

  14. Punching holes in the sides to add a wire hanger is super easy...

  15. So here they are, my colorful peat pot collection, all filled with bird seed.
