Decoupaged Flower Pot How To

Learn how to Decoupage with napkins and Terra Cotta pots to make this craft that takes less than 15 minutes.

Easy Peasy and Cheap!

                 Check out other Terra Cotta/Clay Pots crafts that take under 15 minutes, here.

All you need to do is start with a clay pot. 

 I like to buy them at the Dollar Tree for 1.25$ (Cdn.). 

  I chose to paint the pot first with a coat of white Gesso, paint is acceptable too.

Once the Gesso or paint is dry, brush on some of the Mod Podge (a glue and sealer all in one). 

 Glue down the thin top layer of one or more decorative paper napkins.

It should take less than 15 minutes to make.

                                   Watch this video to see just how easy decoupage can be.

Storage for Art Supplies Product Review

Looking for sturdy, reliable storage for your "On The Go" supplies for art and craft making?  I got to review the Sidekick™Cube with Open Tray, for my own use and supplies.  Read and view my Honest opinion below.

**I was given this product and not paid for the review, post, or video.

I like this product because it is well made and suits my needs.  I especially appreciate the ability to remove the dividers or configure them to better suit whatever tools or supplies I want to store in there.

The handle on the top is very sturdy and because it latches well I was confident in toting it around on the weekend while I was driving my son around and then waiting for him.

 I took it into my car, the contents stayed safe.  I was able to carry it into a coffee shop and do some art journaling while enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee! Once it was time to pick my son up, I just easily put everything back in the Sidekick, closed it, put it in the trunk of my car, and off I went.

My supplies and project were protected, and nothing spilled into the trunk of my car.  My precious project was also protected from the other heavy bags of groceries that I had in that trunk at the same time!  I am a mom and I multi-task!
