clothespin planter

These little wooden planters are charming, and so simple to make, even small children can successfully make them, using tuna cans and clothespins. Camilla at Family Chic is quite a talented designer. Her projects are always fresh, stylish, and simple to make using items you already have at home. She said, “Children love crafts that are simple, turn out well and can serve as a suitable gift for Mom – this craft is all of that.” I would add that adults like crafts like that too!

Make these for teachers in your life, or as a nice party favor (birthday, bridal or baby shower). Also keep these in mind for Mother’s Day gifts. Or hostess gifts. Pretty much, I think these would be great for any occasion!
