Magazine Mosaic Pot

Magazine Mosaic Garden Pot.


This is a lovely garden-inspired craft that teaches kids about recycling.

What You Need:

  • 8″ terra cotta pot
  • magazines
  • scissors
  • decoupage or white craft glue
  • raffia

What You Do:


Instruct children to choose several different pictures from magazines, cut out the pictures and start arranging them on the pot.

Paint a small surface on the pot (where magazine cut-out is to be placed) with decoupage and attach the paper; continue until the pot is covered.

Make sure to instruct the children to only pick a few cut outs, and make sure they are the appropriate size because if they are too large, they will not lay flat.

After the pot is covered with magazine cut-outs, paint the entire pot with decoupage as a sealer (use two coats).

When dry, tie raffia around rim and if desired, plant a pretty flower in it for Mom.
