How to Make

  1. Take a wooden slice and colour with green Deco Pen until the front and back is covered. Leave to dry then draw on apples using red Deco Pen. Add darker green leaves using a darker green felt pen.
  2. Put to one side. Using a fine-tipped black Porcelain pen draw ‘hello’ onto the front of the flowerpot. Alternatively, you can label the pot with the name of the tree, or personalise it with name or initials. If you make a mistake don’t worry, simply use a wet wipe to get rid of any unwanted pen, dry off and start again. Bake in the oven according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. Once the pot has cooled and been removed from the oven, fill it to the brim with river pebbles, as shown. Then put the pot to one side. Glue the ‘tree’ wood slice to a short bamboo stick, using the picture as a guide, using a couple of Glue Dots.
  4. Place the bamboo trunk in amongst the stones, wedging it in until it balances and is held secure by the stones so it sits up straight.
