  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.

  11. I used various colors to experiment...

  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.

  13. I decided to add stamped tags too....

  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.

Cute, but I'm confused about what they're for. You call them Pea Pots and Peat Pots. They are, indeed, peat pots, intended for starting seeds and sticking in the ground where they'll disintegrate. Obviously you're not intending to do that. Are they birdfeeders? Are you trying to get the birdseed to sprout?
