I couldn't help it! When I saw Karla's peat pot post on Karla's Cottage, I had to get out the stuff and make my own!
I'd done peat pots before, quite sometime ago. All my earlier ones were without handles.
This time I mixed it up. I had found some wonderful wired greenery and it made perfect handles!
Some of the baskets were painted.Others used gelli and painted papers I'd done in classes with Kari McKnight Holbrook and Jacqueline Sullivan (and after, too!).
I had a partner in crime for all this creativity -- my friend Jan came by for her first peat pot lesson.
And, she left with these three.
This was the table as I started cleaning up. You don't want to see the mess during!
I just kept going.
And going. And going!
Of course, filling them was fun! There were bunnies...
...and chocolate, too!
I "made" the egg in this one, covering a plastic egg with
brown tissue and spraying with walnut ink.
It was easy and I was very pleased with the results.
I loved making every single peat pot (all of which were surprisingly simple --
some matte medium or Mod Podge, pretty papers, a little paint if you choose,
moss, flowers and eggs -- you're good to go!
Try it -- you'll like it! With peat pots for fifteen cents each and
most of the other things in your stash, what do you have to lose?
