Painted Flower Pots Craft #ExpressYourself

The countdown to summer is on and that means that the kids will have a lot more free time on their hands! I am on the hunt for affordable activities that the entire family can get involved in this summer! Crafts are a perfect solution and it’s even better when the supplies can be used for more than one project! I recently discovered Painters Paint Markers and was inspired to get crafty! Crafts are a great way to #ExpressYourself and do something productive with all of that extra time this summer!

There are many affordable plants available this time of year. I was able to find a flat of 6 marigolds for just $3. At Walmart, small terra-cotta pots were only 78 cents each and I was also able to get a small bag of potting soil for 97 cents. For $6.61 I was able to get all of the supplies for this project that would only be used one time. I actually only needed three plants so we had three extra to plant in other places!

The Painters Paint Markers were the most expensive supply that I purchased for this project but they can be used for many more projects! The markers are 100% acrylic paint that is permanent, streak-free, and dries almost instantly! The markers work on all kinds of surfaces and are available in three tip options and in a variety of colors! You can use them for scrapbooking too which is something I always say I’m going to do but never get around to doing! They are available for $1.97 each at Walmart!

I limited myself to five of the Painters Paint Markers but now that we have used them, we all thought of many more colors we would like to have for other projects! I also purchased only the medium tip markers and they worked great for this project!
