3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Artsy Flower Pots & Lemon Seed Planting on: April 19, 2013 07:36:38 AM
This project contains three pins from Pinterest in one. First the flower pots (http://www.inlieuofpreschool.com/rainbow-pour-painting-flower-pots/, then the coffee filter lining(http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/photos/0,,20241198_20545225,00.html and the lemon seed planting(http://greengardenblog.com/2013/01/03/from-lemon-seeds/.

These were the pots I used:

This is how you start. Grab some paint you can spare/waste and dump it on the flower pots.

Then take however many different paints and dump them on there as well. (Be careful, it's super fun, so I wasted a bunch of paint) Try not to cover the lower paint completely,  and maybe leave some of the pot untouched as well.

There you go. Now let it dry (forever, because I used way too much paint). Notice all the wasted paint on the bottom of the pan? I used that to create the paper "art" for a Spring wreath. I just couldn't let all that paint go to waste, especially cause it's looking pretty cool down there.

I skipped a step here. The pot needed to be covered with clear laquer, because I used water soluble paint. If I didn't the paint would dissolve once I watered the plants inside.

Now for the planting. I prepared the lemon seeds a while ago and put the in the pot covering them with an inch of soil.
So messy! That's what happens, when you feel like springtime, all planting and stuff, and it's snowing outside. (This was end of march!)

Here's the coffee filter sitting in the pot before putting the soil in, so the soil doesn't come through the hole on the bottom. So practical.

And they're done. Took long enough.. all the painting and drying. They took place on our window sill in the bedroom.

Side to side with my small eucalyptus tree.

And here's the three weeks later update:

So cute! It's awesome to watch something grow from a seed Cheesy

Yay, after a long wait (probably mainly because of the lovely german bureaucracy) I got my package from whenindoubtsew.

Check this out:

I think she was reading my mind with the bag. It's so perfect and I actually need a new bag!

Rotten Brains inside. Because, get it, dead inside Cheesy

A lovely locket...

... with comic Michonne and her poor boyfriend & friend. So cool!

Pills to safe me from zombiefication. I think you should get those mass produced. Major market for a cure I think! Wink

The Ricktator on canvas. I'm pretty sure this will go on the wall. I'm just not sure which one yet.

And look at this awesome Angel Wing Shirt. It fits perfectly and I can't wait for spring/summer so I can show it off outside!

Group shot!

Jeez, so much cool stuff. Thank you so much, Kylie, for an awesome first swap and grand swap items Cheesy
And thanks to babalina58 for doing this swap and inviting me to participate! It's been great!

Don't worry just yet - I have swapped a few times with other craftsters from Germany and it can take a while. I will let you know as soon as it arrives. I hope yours gets to you shortly after that  Cheesy

Alright, I'll be patient!

So many sweet goodies, I just hope my package arrives well and soon. I heard some horror stories about the mailing system from germany to australia... it's been two weeks now.
This is the hardest part, the wait. No wonder that a few of you are in multiple swaps at a time Smiley

The comics are way different, more realistic I think, less pg, less pc. But that's what I like about them. I actually like the love story between Andrea and you-know-who. Why not? It's the zombie apocalypse and everyone needs some lovin. Wink
