Christmas Flower Pot Recycling Craft

This particular plastic bucket was a container for joghurt. With paper napkin applique, you can turn an otherwise piece of trash to a decorative piece of treasure. Clean the container with soap and hot water before decorating and remove any labels if there are any. This is an idea what you can make out of small plastic containers from the kitchen.



Recycling Craft for Christmas - Flower Pot

For this project you will need:

- plastic bucket
- paper napkin with desire motif
- white acrylic paint
- textured snow paint
- glitter
- paper napkin applique glue or decoupage glue


1. Base coat your container with white paint and let thoroughly dry. It may be necessary to repeat if the paint did not cover the markings too well.
2. Remove the 2 bottom layers of the paper napkin and tear the edges to make them uneven. This blends better when overlapping the motifs so a thick straight line will not be seen.
3. Following the instructions below, adhere the paper napkin onto the bucket . You may have to overlap motifs to get a complete coverage.
4. While the glue is still wet, sprinkle glitter on the bucket if desired.
5. Around the top edge and maybe on some of the motifs, add textured snow paint to give it a wintery look.
6. Let completely dry.
