Mini chalk pots are a perfect to give as gifts to your loved ones or to show your appreciation to someone special. Easy and Quick and oh so cute.
I’ve been trying to find the perfect Father’s Day gift for my hubby. I was thinking of something to go on his desk at work. Something that would remind him of his girls.
This is what I came up with:
Mini Chalk Pots
A few years ago my father gave me some Hen & Chicks (succulents) which came from my grand-mother’s plant (I believe it came from her mother’s plant). My sister mentioned that she put a few in a pot. Since mine is growing like crazy, I thought I could easily take some and put a few in little pots for Sébastien.
I picked up little terracotta pots and a rectangular white plate from the dollar store. (I didn’t want it to be too big for his desk.) I thought the mini pots would look cute on the little plate.
I also wanted the pots to be personalized. With the help of Gabrielle we painted the terracotta pots with chalk paint.
This is how we created our Mini Chalk Pots:
Step #1: We took out the chalk paint. Step #2: We applied two coats of chalk paint. Step #3: We also put a little bit of chalk paint on the inside rim.
Step #4: We dug up some Hen & Chicks (succulents). Step #5: We filled the pots with potting soil. Step #6: We planted the Hen & Chicks (succulents).
