It’s hard to come up with unique and creative gift ideas, especially for those who have just everything they need. Don’t you think gifts we make ourselves are the most fun to give–and to get?
These chalkboard flowerpots would be an interesting addition to any kitchen. The raffia gives them a special touch. It’s easy to buy small terra cotta pots, paint them with chalkboard paint, tie a raffia bow and plant some herbs. Who doesn’t need herbs?

Get the kids or grand-kids together with some paints and pots and have fun. These rival some fine arts I’ve seen, and what a great activity for kids of all ages!
These sure beat those awful macaroni necklaces we made for our moms in grade school.

Serious crafters would love doing this.
If you’re one of my friends, you just may get one of these some day.
And of course, feel free to give me anything you see here. Just sayin’.
