here are step by step instructions that they say five year old can make, all I know is it takes a ton of pots and would not be cheap, I would go by there's except try to mold it off of your photo less pots etc. Joan

looks easy enough, but costly. I think you could do the hands and shoes from foam.

These are so cute. I was thinking of making one for a housewarming gift for a friend of ours who is impossible to shop for. I don't know if you saw it or not, but craftyannie posted 2 links on making flower pot people that are a little bit different than these two. The post is on page two of this forum and is titled making flower pot people. it was posted on February 26, 2013. if you do decide to make it, would you please let me know how difficult it was to make? Thanks,

It looks to me like they might have used doll shoes, the plastic ones and maybe also doll hands. These are so darn cute and I would love to make some but wander how much it would cost for all those pots ?? If anyone does make them I hope you will post pics and also how you did it.

Hi,

I jut bought the pots to make one of these for a gift for a friend of mine and I was wondering if anyone had made one yet. If so, did you ever end up finding he shoes and the hands? Do you have any tips or tricks? And does anyone know if the outfit on the body is painted on or made out of felt? I would love to see a picture of how it turned out. Thanks everyone!

Nicole

Hi. Just saw this post and wanted to reply. Nope, I haven't made anything like this but thought that the clothes look like part was painted on while other parts look like they are glued over the painted parts. (For instance the 'petal' things on the dress). As far as the hands and feet go, the cheapest thing I can think of to use would be clay. It would be easy to mold them and bake them. Just do two things - make the inside aluminum foil so they wouldn't be too heavy and make sure to make the tops pretty thick where the holes would go so they wouldn't break easily. Same for the hands. They are very cute. I may try this for my Mom if I ever get the chance. I'm so busy painting stuff. Just wish I had a workable camera because I'm having such a hard time figuring prices and know I could get help here. Oh well lol. Good luck with them!
