These cute little pilgrim hats make great place cards for your Thanksgiving table that guests can take with them.
Approximate Time: About 30 minutes
3 inch terra cotta flower pot
black acrylic paint
blue, red, or green acrylic paint
black craft foam
yellow craft foam
foam brush or paint brush
black permanent marker
Using a sponge brush or paint brush, paint the entire pot black and allow it to dry.
Choose a color to paint the band around the top of the pot (blue, red, green, etc.). Let it dry.
Cut a circle from black foam. Cut it about 1/2 inch wider all around than the pot opening. You can use an appropriate size lid, dish, or cup to trace.
Place a small amount of glue on the rim of the pot and glue onto the black foam circle.
To make the buckle, measure the width of the band of the pot (the portion painted a different color). Cut a rectangle out of foam that measures about 1/8 inch deeper than the band on the pot. Glue it to the band. Let the glue dry.
Use a black permanent marker to write the guest's name on the colored band, and allow it to dry before using.
