Have you noticed all the trendy face and head planter pots? They are so fun and whimsical! I used a recycled container and here is my How to Make Face Planter Pot. I give the pot a Patriotic flair with the addition of DIY felt flowers for the Team Creative Crafts Patriotic Edition. I like to use home decor items from around the house and add details to make them special for different holidays.
The base for this fun planter were a couple of plastic cubes I glued together. They came with our new arbor assembly and held little bits. I kept them to make something and a whimsical planter was perfect. I used Kunin Felt for the face as it is weather resistant. Now I have a fun addition for my new potting bench.
Let's get started!
You will need a container, the face is about 6" but can be adjusted in size. My conta8ner is the same width of 6".
9" x 12" craft cuts of Kunin Felt: White, Black, Red, Royal Blue
White chenille stems
Flower Die, I used Eileen Hull's Flowe Die with Sizzix (or cut free hand flower shapes)
Dimentional paint in black
Scissors, ruler, marker, chalk, pencil, 6" and 2" circle templates
Cut a 6" circle from white and black felt. Trim in to oval shape. Cut the black one slightly larger than the white. Draw eyes with pencil on white. Paint and let dry. Cut 2" circle in half. Fold one half and curt a small lip shape. Glue to face. Glue white face over black back. Glue to front of container. I had these cute Harry Potter glasses that were a perfect fit!
Die Cut felt flower shapes from fabric scraps and red, white, blue felt. Layer flower shapes making as many as you want.
insert chenille stem through each flower stack, bend end. Glue button over chenille stem at center. Insert straw. Bend end over slightly. Cut off excess. Repeat for each flower.
Place greenery in your Face planter and add felt flowers. Add some felt stars if want and as many flowers as your container needs.
