Last week my daughter bought me a mini-daffodil plant, because she knows they are my favorite flower. Flowers are a great way to brighten up the winter doldrums and remind ourselves that spring is just around the corner!

So I asked my daughter to make me some flower pots to hold the daffodils, along with some herbs that I have had sitting on the window sill in the kitchen. She found this pin on Pinterest which made thumbprint polka dots all over a terracotta flower pot, and changed it up by making thumbprint butterflies on the flower pots.

See how to make the flower pots:

Supplies

Supplies for Thumbprint Flower Pot

  • Terracotta flower pot
  • acrylic paint in multiple colors
  • paint brush
  • paper plate

  • plants

Directions

First I painted a colored stripe around the top edge of the flower pot. I used blue and yellow paint for bright and cheerful spring colors.

Painting the flower pot

Next my daughter put some paint on a paper plate, and used her thumb to make a butterfly shape on the flower pot. The pots we used were small, so there was only room for one butterfly.

Making the thumbprints

After the paint was dry I used a permanent marker to make a body and antenna for the butterfly. Then I took the daffodils and herbs out of their original pots and planted them in the new ones.

  1. I love daffodils, too! They are always some of the first flowers to come up in spring. Now I want to get mini ones in a pot so I can do thumbprint butterflies. This is such a cute craft!
