Santa Claus is coming.. to town!
I have that song stuck in my head every time I see these planters. I recently saw a Santa pants basket in Michaels, and was inspired to make Santa Pants flower pots!
Honestly, this is so easy, and looks so great housing a pair of poinsettia plants.
Here is exactly what I used to make my cute Santa Pants Flower Pots:
- Two terra cotta flower pots with bases
- Red and Black Patio Patio from DecoArt®
- Sponge brushes
- 1.5″ Black Ribbon
- Gold glittery self-adhesive foam sheet
- White batting
- Glue gun
I painted my terra cotta pots red and the bases black and let dry.
Then, I cut a 1″ strip of white batting and glued it to the bottom of each pot with my glue gun. You can also use cotton balls, or white pom poms.
I used my glue gun again to glue a length of ribbon that fit all the way around the two pots when next to each other, adding an extra 6-8 inches of overlap. Finally, I cut a square shape from my gold glitter foam sheet, with a smaller square in the center for the belt buckle and attached it on the front. Mine was about 3″x 3″.
And these Santa pants flower pots look so great with two pretty poinsettia plants inside them. I love it!
These look great for outdoor holiday decor, or fabulous inside as a centerpiece.
