It’s a Christmas miracle-I’ve got a new project for you that I did myself and it’s here today! It’s been a while since I did that. I needed a craft for a family party recently-something that could work for 4 year olds up to 13 year olds-and this is what we ended up doing. We decorated mini flower pots in various Christmas characters. I’ve got an Elf, Santa, a Reindeer and a Snowman for you!
They are very simple to make-you just need a few things and your creativity.
Here’s a closer look at each of them. Here’s the elf (which my 13 year old says is creepy):
A cute little Santa:
And a snowman:
You could make these for any sort of kids party! The paint dries pretty quickly too, which is nice so that you can transport them soon after making them.
Here’s a look at how.
Christmas Character Candy Pots:
- Mini flower pots
- Paint Brushes
- Googly eyes
- Pipe Cleaner
- Ribbon or other embellishments
- Hot glue or craft glue
Really, you can kind of let the kids do what they want to make these. My boys go VERY creative! One actually made his just a santa hat which was fun. Another decided to do a Pokemon character. They can do what they want!
Just start by painting the pot and then letting it dry.
Add embellishments. If you are using hot glue, you’ll want to help the kids for this part.
A couple of tips for you. I painted felt to get the right color for the Elf ears. You could use cotton balls or fur for Santa’s beard if you want.
Then fill with candy and enjoy!
