For the love of Pete

Or make that peat pots. I bought a package of those biodegradable seed starter pots at the dollar store to do some crafting with.

The first one I glued on some yellow tissue paper then added a barnyard picture. I grunged it up a little and added a tea light.


This one I simply made the egg label in photoshop and glued it on. The eggs are another project I've been working on.


The third one became a nest for that bird I made a while back. I added a ribbon at the top, some twine at the bottom and a picture and label that I printed out. I also added just a touch of glitter.

I kind of liked the bird sitting in there so I did some playing with the picture.

Tomorrow I'll be back with some other things I've worked on.

my favorite of the pots themselves is the first one, i like the others but that first pot is really cool and arty looking. you could put the eggs in it or the chicken in it, all of the contents would look great in all of the pots... you done GOOD... I give you A ++ on all three .. you need to take days off again...

What great uses for those peat pots. I thought you were going to tell us you used them for planting and I was going to be even more jealous if you can garden as well as craft.

Donna said...

How cute! I keep trying to remember to buy those peat pots for craft projects and forget! Of course, DH has to go EVERYWHERE that I go, so a trip to the dollar store is out of the question. (He isn't the best "browsing" shopper. Too impatient.) And we don't go to Wal-Mart very often anymore either. LOL, I guess I need to just order off of the internet!

Too cute Ann. I love stuff like this. I sure wish I could do this type of thing, but I've tried and it's not pretty.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. ☺

Love all the peat pots! What a great assortment.
I really like the "playing around" witht he third photo. It has a kind of cartoony look to it. Very whimsical...love it!

Your eggs look like a potent source of fiber. Sorry, I would not say "good" until further FDA testing is completed.
