In the craft world, especially during summer, fruit DIYs are so trendy. Pineapples are on top of the list. A big thanks to sites like StudioDIY and Oh Happy Day for making that happen. This year, I thought I’d jump on the fruit trend band wagon, but skip the pineapple and go straight to the strawberry.
So, I mixed one of my favorite fruits with one of my favorite things – plants – and designed a pot to resemble the strawberry.
My family has really been into using clay lately. So, instead of making yet another bowl. I thought I’d try to make a flower pot. But I was worried how the water in the soil would stand up against the air dry clay so I decided to plaster the clay onto a terra-cotta pot to give it more of a strawberry shape.
Once dry, I painted it pink with white dots. For a complete tutorial, go to Momtastic.com.
Then I added the plant that kind of resembled the top of a strawberry. On hindsight, I should have chosen a plant with wider leaves. But I’ll know for next time.
