This cute clay pot craft is painted and stacked to look like a water fountain. You can place the water fountain outside a doll house or just use it as a place to put change. If you want to get fancy, try adding some lighter blue paint the the regular blue to give it a rushing water look.

Approximate Time: 10 minutes without drying time

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Paint the large plate and one pot green, as shown in the first picture. Let dry.
  2. Use a light green to paint a curvy line around the pot and plate. Use small dabs to create leaves, as shown in the second picture. Let dry.

Very cute! A small English Ivy would look great planted in this because of how they randomly fan out and down.
