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
- craft glue
- 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.
