Painted Fairy House Pots

These are fun to make and set around the garden.

Terra Cotta pots
Polyurethane water base
Several different colors or crafting paint water based
Paint Brushes
A Big Imagination

1. Start with clean pots...a water bleach solution will get rid of any dirt and grime. Let it dry completely.

2. Coat all pots with polyurethane and let them dry overnight.

3. Gather the kids, and painting supplies and let the imaginations run rampant.

4. Once the kids and you have completed your creative huts and the paint is dry. Apply two to three coats of polyurethane, letting them dry completely. I know this part isn't as fun, but you have to protect these works of art, especially if you are going to place them in the garden.
