DIY Ceramic Flowerpots
I bought these to make favors for my daughter's first birthday. I painted them to look like ladybugs and later added pipecleaners as antennas and legs...they turned out adorable! The size was perfect and not a single one was cracked! I did a lot of research and found that I got the best bang for my buck from oriental trading company. Well done OTC!

Much better than I expected
These were much better than expected and I'm so glad I made this last minute choice.

Great Product... Great Price!
I bought 2 sets of these ceramic flowerpots for a family reunion where I am in charge of the craft hour. They arrived quickly, even quicker that OT's estimated shipping calendar. Not one was broken. They were packed very well and arrived in perfect condition. I can hardly wait to get these decorated!

Mother's Day Gifts
These made excellent gifts from our boys to all their grandmothers (and to me!) for Mother's Day. They each (ages 5 and 1 1/2) decorated one per recipient and then we planted inexpensive 4" impatiens in each. We have a large family (with lots of aunts, step-grandparents, etc.) so I love to find one product that can serves as gifts for many-especially at a great price! *Note: the ceramic markers used to paint these should be fired in the oven at a low temperature. I don't remember seeing this in the item description.

I buy these pots every year for my children to make Mother's Day gifts. We plant flower seeds now, and I send them home on the Friday before Mother's Day. They are better quality gifts than paper cups.
It's too bad they don't have drainage holes. They are a little pricey, but worth it.

These pots were just what we needed for our craft project. They were great quality and just as pictured in the catalog. The only down side is that while they were easy to paint on the outside, we needed to paint the inside lip and the paint would not stick or dry on the inside. The outside was easy to paint.

Absolutely love these pots. Bought them for our 9 yr old's birthday and both kids and adults had a blast decorating them. Also bought the 10 Pc. Ceramic Marker Set from this site; they worked perfectly. Along with the markers we used acrylic paint and hot glued gems to them. Will def. purchase them again and again. Only bummer is there aren't holes at the bottom of the pot for drainage. Oh well, still very much worth it. Thanks OTC!

I bought the pots and had the kids decorate them as a party favor for my daughter's birthday. They are peach colored with a coating inside and not outside (so you can paint them better?) and they look nice. My only problem is that they don't have a little hole at the bottom for when you water the plants so i am not sure the flowers we planted in them will do very well over time. My ideal would have been if they had that hole and came with a little tray. otherwise they are very cute and not expensive.

I really liked these pots. They are a good price and size, and quality. They are not white, but they really do the job i needed.

Great Craft Idea!
If you're looking for a great craft idea, these pots come in handy. My students decorated these flower pots for their mother's and/or grandmother's for Mother's Day. Very easy to paint, decorate, etc. They are the perfect size as well. Though, these flower pots are not white. They have an off-white color to them. The only true downfall was that some of them came broken. But in the end, the final result was fantastic and the parents truly enjoyed them.
