Good morning! Today I have a fun Winnie the Pooh craft to share with you! Our whole family loves Pooh Bear, and when my son turned two, we celebrated with a Winnie the Pooh birthday party/Baptism party for my youngest. It is such a cute theme for a children’s party with so many ideas on Pinterest for cute food and decorations. I created a bunch of honey pots for the party to put food and flowers in. They were so easy to make, and nothing says Pooh bear like lots and lots of honey!
I recently needed to make another Winnie the Pooh centerpiece and decided to make a honey pot filled with yellow flowers. I added plant stakes decorated with classic Pooh. Below is the tutorial – it’s super easy and makes an adorable centerpiece for a Pooh-themed party or as a gift. I filled my pot with water and used real flowers, but the pot did “sweat” after a while. I had my pot set on a trivet so it was fine. You may want to use fake flowers or a ceramic pot instead of terra cotta to keep a tablecloth or table from getting wet if set directly on it. :)
Supplies Needed for Winnie the Pooh Honey Pot Centerpiece

- Pot – I used a terra cotta pot from Joann Fabrics
- Brown acrylic paint – I used FolkArt Acrylic Paint in Teddy Bear Brown
- Yellow acrylic paint – I used DecoArt Acrylic Paint in Bright Yellow
- Popsicle sticks or straws
- Winnie the Pooh Classic Pooh Bees and Classic Pooh Characters
- Yellow flowers
Step One: Paint the word “HUNNY” on the front of the pot using brown acrylic paint. Make sure to write the first “N” backwards like in the stories and movie. :)
Step Two: Using yellow acrylic paint, add honey drips along the top of the pot all the way around.
Step Three: To create the plant stakes, I used my Classic Pooh scrapbooking embellishments. I glued a few to the top of yellow Popsicle sticks. You could also glue them to straws or wooden dowels.
I ended up making all of my stakes two Popsicle sticks tall so they would poke out of the top of the flower arrangement.
Fill your pot with real flowers or fake flowers. I noted above that the terra cotta pot will sweat when filled with water. It took a few hours for mine to start sweating, but I made sure to place it on a trivet. If you don’t want to worry about water marks, you can use fake flowers or just a little bit of water – or a different type of pot.
Stick the plant stakes into the center of the flower arrangement. I had to play around and find spots where they would stand up straight. I then added tiny paper bees all over.
The Winnie the Pooh honey pot centerpiece is finished! I only needed to make one, but it turned out so cute I kind of wanted to keep going! I have used these Classic Pooh paper embellishments for so many things. The little paper bees are my favorite and come with a little foam sticker on the back so they are ready to be added to anything.
