Mother's Day Flower Pot

I'm back to share with you the flower pot I made my Mom for Mother's Day.  I got the idea from Pinterest and you can find it here.  It was very easy to make, but it is time consuming because of the layers of paint and Modge Podge plus the drying time in between.
First, I painted the pot white in 3 coats.  I then printed pictures onto computer paper and cut them out.  I adhered them to the pot using Modge Podge.  I then applied 5 coats of Modge Podge over the whole pot, except where I was going to put the chalkboard paint.  I painted the top rim with black chalkboard paint with 2 coats.
I cannot wait to give it to my Mom and Sunday because I know that she is going to love it!


*I blurred out our faces, so no worries...we don't really look like that ; )
