While trying to come up with a gift for my sons teacher this year I came up with this Santa Belly Pot. It was something that would be inexpensive and easy for my son to do. We started with a clay flower pot and some paint. My son painted the whole thing red. After it dried, he (with my help) painted the "belt" black. We then used a hot glue gun to stick on the "belt buckle".
I had made some homemade candy the day before so we wrapped it up and stuck it inside along with an ornament my son made.
I love how easy the gift was and that my son was able to do most of the work himself. Homemade gifts are always my favorite.
