INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: For outdoor use, use outdoor materials and seal the paint with an outdoor varnish.

  1. Paint the inside rim and the outside of the pot in Laguna with a flat brush. Cut floral foam to fit on the inside of the pot. Cut faux greenery to fit inside the pot in a "U" shape so there is an area to fill with rocks. Use hot glue to hold floral foam and greenery in place.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Cut a wooden skewer into pieces about 1-1/4" long with scissors. Cut two pieces of twine about 12" long each. Paint the wooden pieces in Bright Blue. Tie or hot glue the skewer pieces onto the twine to form a ladder. (Make this is long as you would like.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint two skewers in Bright Blue and insert them into the floral foam on each side of the pot. (If needed, cut them shorter.) Create a banner for the skewers by cutting triangles from your favorite scrapbook paper and hot gluing them onto the twine. Hot glue the ladder into place.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Paint the teepee in Light Lime with a flat brush. Use a round brush to add a triangle for the door in Laguna and stripes in Green Tree and Brilliant Purple. Paint the top of the house in Bright Purple with Bright Blue scallops for shingles. Paint the bottom half of the house in Cotton Candy. With a round brush, paint a door in Scarlet with a Laguna round window.
  5. With a round brush, paint two fairy figures as you would like. (Pictured: Both figures have Cotton Candy skin, with grey hair, mixed from Lamp Black and Snow White, and facial features painted in Lamp Black. The grandma has a dress painted in Scarlet and the grandpa has a Green Tree shirt and Bright Blue pants.)
