Dollar Store Craft: Flower Planters

Looking for a fun craft to do with your toddler? Why not make some flower planters with this dollar store craft from The Bewitchin' Kitchen.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not all that crafty, not only that but I usually find crafts to be time consuming and expensive. That’s why I love this dollar store craft idea! My three year old and I created these flower planters using supplies we brought home from the dollar store!

I was walking down the aisle of my local Dollarama looking for supplies for the DIY Hanging Basket I was making for The Canadian Mother Resource, when I spotted these cute mini planers. I figured these would be perfect for the little packages of planting herbs that I usually pick up from the grocery store so I grabbed three, some paint brushes and paint and went to checkout.

Since my son loves to paint (and he was already doing a few fun crafts) I thought it would be fun if we tackled this dollar store craft together. As you can tell in the photo, my herb idea transformed into a few pansies – the kid really liked the flowers and was adamant that we buy them.

I gave him some acrylic paint on a paper paint, handed him a paint brush and he went to town.

I even decided to paint one, don’t you think I should give up blogging and go into painting full time? That’s my best work people!

I set the dollar store craft planters outside and once they dried I sealed them with Country Chic Paint’s Tough Coat (but a poly acrylic would work just as well).

Next add your soil, the flower or herb and that’s it! It’s the perfect lazy-person craft. I love how this dollar store craft took no time, hardly any effort and it cost me under $15 (the planters were $1.50 each, the paint was $1 – the most expensive part were the flowers and soil).

Dollar Store Craft: Flower Planter Supplies:
