We all hate getting older, when we actually are older
but somehow those Birthday's sneak up on us...
year after shining year.
My good friend just recently celebrated a milestone
Birthday and to celebrate her jokester self, I thought
sending her a pot fill with suckers would at least make
her laugh...it did!
I picked up a terracotta pot and foam ball from
a local craft store and a mondo bag
of suckers (thank you Sam's Club) and got to work.
I already had black chalkboard spray paint and gold
lying around, as well as frog tape.
First I taped off the top of the pot where I wanted
the gold to go and spray painted two coats of the black
chalkboard paint on the bottom of the pot.
After the paint was dry, I peeled off the tape and
carefully taped off the bottom, black portion. I gently
pressed the tape onto the bottom, so it didn't peel off
the paint and then quickly sprayed the rim and inside
the pot a pretty gold.
Two coats, drying time and then it was time to
plant some suckers!! I started at the top and worked
my way around. I tried to stick to the Birthday
girl's favorite colors but had to add a bit of green
to the bottom, we will just call them leaves.
Next a little free hand drawing with chalk markers,
not super fancy but it gets the job done cause really
...40 SUCKS!! ;)
