Petite Pots

Hi there all {including all of my new followers} I'm so happy that you all came along for the ride.

Just a quick post to share what I made the last couple of nap times.  I whipped up some petite altered peat pots.

I have made altered peat pots before, like my Frenchy Easter Baskets from this post and actually have about 8 more of those to make before CS Day strikes (that would be Craft Show Day).

I picked these little peat pots up at a local Ace Hardware last month.

It was love at first sight. 

They have "France" imprinted on the bottom of each one...I'm a bit of a Francophile so that sealed the deal for me.

I altered each one with some vintage images and/or some Tim Holtz Tissue Tape.  It is the stuff left over from this jewelry project.

I filled each one with some glass marbles to add a bit of weight then added in a piece of floral foam and covered with peat moss.  I had some black floral wire that I picked up at the dollar store a while back and I just cut it in half and curled the top of each one.  Now they can be used to hold a picture of place cards.

Wouldn't these be great for place card holders or table number holders for a wedding.  I can just see them all altered with lace or photos of the happy couple for a wedding. 

Have a wonderful day!
