DIY Star Wars Flower Planters

This week my youngest daughter, Mallorie, has been home and she is crafting. Mallorie is combining two of her favorite things: Star Wars and plants. I am not much of a Star Wars fan so she is helping me with identifying these characters.

Star Wars Flower PlanterMallorie used four-inch flower pots. She put a base coat on and then drew out the lines with a pencil. Then using the pencil lines, she started adding the little details on R2D2. She had to use a very small outlining brush for the small straight lines.

    Hi Dena, do you sell these? My son is turning 6 and having a Star Wars party next Saturday (in MA) on a farm where they will be painting terra cotta pots. I thought these would be perfect for the table and kids could try to mimic the painting. Please let me know.
    Thank you!

    Hi Dena,
    My husband is a HUGE Star Wars fan. I love what your daughter did and I’m hoping to recreate it for him. However, painting is not my craft of choice.
    Do you/does she have any further suggestions or instructions on how to achieve such great results? Was a pattern used for R2D2?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m hoping to have a presentable end result as an anniversary gift :).
    Thank you,
