******************************************************

You’ll Need:

– 3 flower pots in different sizes
– red, white, and black acrylic paint
– 4 sets of: 5 wooden skewers and 2 popsicle sticks
– 2 corks
– toothpick
– paint brush, hot glue gun, knife
– waterproof spray

Here’s How:

1. Paint the rim of the flower pot white. After the paint has dried, tape off the white section and paint the rest of the pot red. Repeat with the other flower pots.

2. Lay the pots upside down and glue them stacked on top of one another with a hot glue gun — this works best if the pots are just one size apart. Paint a black door and white window frame on the bottom pot.

3. To create the windmill blades, first prepare the wooden skewers and popsicle sticks as shown in the video: 1 long skewer, 3 medium skewers, 6 skewer pieces, and 2 popsicle sticks. Take the the long skewer and place it between two medium skewers. Evenly align the three skewers and glue a popsicle stick to the bottom with the rounded edge facing out. Glue the other popsicle stick above that, also with the rounded edge facing out, so that it looks like one long popsicle stick is glued to the one side. Turn the blade over and glue the six skewer pieces to the back, making sure to evenly space out the pieces. Finally, glue the third medium skewer to the edge of the skewer pieces, as shown in the video, and paint the entire thing white. Ta-da — now you have your completed windmill blade! Repeat this three more times with the rest of your supplies to create the other windmill blades.

4. To create the hub of the propeller, connect two corks with a toothpick or an extra skewer piece. Sharpen the bottom of one cork and paint the entire contraption white.

5. Evenly space the completed blades around the propeller hub and push the protruding stick parts into the unsharpened cork. Push the sharpened cork into the hole on the top flower pot and your windmill is ready to go. Spray the entire thing down with waterproof spray to make sure it lasts for many seasons to come.

    Is 1 layer of paint enough to seal the pottery so that its waterproof for the rain?

  25. Lucy Jake on August 24, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Sooooo Cuuuuute … sadly I literally have a terra cotta pot graveyard where inevitably every single one I have ever purchased ends up. I’m not sure what my problem is with them but a problem it is nonetheless. These upcycled pots are just simply adorable and I had lots of fun trying to determine what you were making… very cute (and seemingly easy??) I actually have a bunch of those teeny tiny cactus pots. All I would have to buy would be the bigger sizes. I know some ppl who would really appreciate these crafts and it would be so cool if I made them presents. Thanks for the great ideas that don’t look cheesy and I subbed just so I could see more. I also love the quick and no-frills presentation. Short vids are so much more watchable Many Blessings 💜
