Once again, I am reposting a perfect Thanksgiving craft. I've got mine on my front porch, welcoming guests.
I was flipping through the Lowe's Creative Ideas catalog for November/December 2010. I found the cutest Pilgrim Planter. http://www.lowescreativeideas.com/idea-library/WAGI_Pilgrim_Planter_1110.aspx I, of course, made some changes to what they did to make it my own. I painted my clay pot, very lightly, with black paint. I used black grosgrain ribbon, instead of black duct tape. They didn't have the gold washers at our Lowes. I took a silver one, scratched it up with sandpaper, and lightly painted it gold. I planted pansies in my pot. I do like their flower arrangement better. It's easy and adorable. It's very versatile. You could get little pots and use them as place holders. You could arrange multiple pots together for a fantastic arrangement. So cute!
