Creeper Planter

At A’s Green Fling day at school (a combination environmental awareness and field day), he received a tomato plant. After searching for a new planter for it, I settled on an inexpensive clay pot and decided to turn it into a creeper planter (Minecraft is EVERYTHING right now at our house) for A.

Here is what I did:

I started with a simple clay pot from Lowe’s (about 12 bucks):

And then I painted a simple pixel design around the top:

*I used simple acrylic paints for the project, and you could help it last by applying a matte setting spray after you are done (before you plant your plants). However, I have not used a spray thus far, and that shredder pot has lasted for two years without a chip (what you see on it in the picture is dirt).
