Geranium Dress-up

With mother's day coming I was trying to find something unique to give my mom. She loves geraniums but they always come in bland pots. I wanted to dress one up and came up with a project that could also be done by kids. Enjoy!

First choose a couple of colors of foam sheets.

Then measure the size of your pot.

Next, cut arches at the long side of two pieces.

Wrap one of the two cut pieces around the pot and secure with tape.

Draw a line to mark the top of the pot. Also draw a straight line on the side. Cut out at marks.

Using a glue gun, glue on strips of a different color foam and attache all three pieces together.

Repeat the same process with the second piece so that both are attached in a circular way.
Now the fun part...Decorate!
This is where the kids can go crazy and embellish the cover any way they want. Glue pieces down with a glue gun. 
Note: I cut out the shapes before I glued the whole thing together.

Here it is before slipping it down over the pot. I added little hearts too but forgot to take another photo.

Here it is after slipping over the pot.
