Instructions

  1. Clean pots if necessary. Paint a layer of white paint on the 3 1/2" pots. Let dry and repeat for full coverage.

Paint the 1 3/4" and 2 3/4" pots with the burgundy paint. Set aside and let dry.

Use a pencil to draw in where you would like the face and beard area to be.

Paint the area outside the face/beard with blue or green, then repeat with the other pot. Cover the pencil lines. Let dry.

Use the end of the paintbrush along with black paint to dot the eyes onto the base pot. Let dry.

Glue the wood bead to the front of the pot underneath the eyes. If the bead isn't flat on one side, use the sandpaper to make a flat area. Glue down the nose and let dry.

Use the E-6000 to attach the hat pots to the base. Let dry completely. Add Mod Podge if desired and let dry before displaying.
