A Cute Keepsake Gardening Craft
Give your loved ones living hairdos with a project that's simple to make (and simply silly).
1. Select a glazed ceramic, plastic, or metal planter with smooth, straight sides.2. Print a family member's photo, enlarged so that the head is roughly the height of your pot. Cut out the head, then trim across the top of the forehead, as shown.3. Cut a piece of clear Con-Tact paper to be a few inches taller than the pot and wide enough to encircle it. Peel off the backing.4. Center the head, facedown, on the top edge of the paper.5. Wrap the Con-Tact paper around the pot, smoothing any bubbles as you go. Trim the edges with scissors or a craft knife (an adult's job).6. Add a plant that makes a hilarious hairdo.
Crafter's Tip: If you can't find the perfect planter, use a decorative pail or vase, then nest a potted plant inside.
