Create these fun Thing 1 and Thing 2 flower pots to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day!
Hello! Today I’m sharing these fun Thing 1 and Thing 2 flower pots in honor of Dr. Seuss Day coming up this weekend on March 2nd. Dr. Seuss is a favorite in our house! We love reading our favorite Dr. Seuss books and doing lots of fun crafts this week.
This year I created these cute Thing 1 and Thing 2 flowerpots. They were a quick DIY and I love how silly the blue hair looks sticking out of the pots. Can you guess what the blue hair is made from? A feather boa! I found a long feather boa, in the perfect bright blue color at Joann Fabrics, and thought it would be perfect for this project.
Below is the tutorial for the Thing 1 and Thing 2 graphics.
- 2 flower pots
- red acrylic paint
- sticker labels/sticker paper if printing the graphics
- white and black vinyl if using your cutting machine (plus transfer tape)
- blue feather boa (I found mine at Joann Fabrics)
Step One: Paint the flower pots with red acrylic paint.
Step Two: Add the Thing 1 and Thing 2 graphics. I used my Cricut cutting machine and created circles that were 1″ tall and wide, and cut these out of white and black vinyl. I used transfer tape to apply the vinyl to the pots.
Step Three: The final step is to add the blue feather boa! I cut my feather boa in half (a little messy but not as messy as I was expecting) and coiled each half of the feather boa into a ball. I was able to then stick each part of the feather boa into the pot, so it stuck out like Thing 1 and Thing 2’s crazy hair!
These little flower pots turned out so cute!
Enjoy celebrating Dr. Seuss Day! :)
