Crafting with Kids: Lucky Flower Pots

The stores are beginning to fill with bright, springy décor; and with winter (hopefully) on its way out, March signals the very beginning of our shift into warmer months. In anticipation of sunshine, here is a simple St. Patrick’s Day-inspired project you can use to bring a little bit of early spring indoors.

Once you’ve finished customizing your flower pots, let your children continue getting their hands dirty – by helping you pot your first plants of the year!

Paint lucky pots

What you need:

  • Small, plain terra cotta pots
  • Green and gold craft paints
  • Green buttons
  • Gold plastic coins
  • Paint brush
  • Tacky craft glue (such as Aleene’s brand)

Tip: Find individual craft-friendly packs of solid-colored buttons and plastic coins at area craft stores such as JoAnn Fabric and Crafts, Michaels or Hobby Lobby.



  • Let your child paint each pot with either green or gold paint. (Tip: Turn the pots upside down for more stability as your child paints, and help them turn it around to cover all sides.)
  • Let the pots dry completely (this will probably not take long, since terra cotta pots tend to soak up paint quickly).
  • Apply tacky craft glue around the top rim of the pot and let your child adhere either green buttons or gold plastic coins. Let dry overnight.
