Wooden Flowerpot "Give Thanks!" Recipe Holder Craft Kit
I bought this for my kids in class and I end up doing them because it was hard for the kids (age 8-9) to put it together. I was so embarrassed! The hole on the pot is too small, the ribbon was falling apart. Waste of money.

The ribbon was completely torn and not useable for any of the 12. The base part was painted horrible as well. I managed to buy some paint and repaint them and add my own ribbon and decorations to at least be able to use these for our Thanksgiving dinner. I was very disappointed in this item and am shocked they would mail these to people in this un-useable condition.

Some of the pots won't sit upright. I know that a little sandpaper will work. However, I thought they would be more functional as magnets. I made them as a token during a Thanksgiving celebration. Everyone loved them!

We were disappointed in the quality of this product. The hole in the flowerpot was too small for the stick. We ordered 60 of these and they were all too small. We had to carve out the hole with a scissors so that the stick would fit inside.
Other than that, it was a cute little project. We used a hot glue gun to glue everything together and it worked out well.

Great little gift
This was a quick project for my first graders, after they wrote out a recipe to include with it. However, some of the packages are missing parts, so make sure that you have more than enough. I didn't.

I glued the clothespin directly to the leaf so i didn't have the same problem as the last post.
Agree, well suited for older ages (10+)
Super cute when finished!

Too difficult for chldren
This product is real nice once it is assembled. However this is only if an adult or teen is putting it together. It took a lot of effort. For children, there are too many pieces and we had to use glue and glue dots for it to stick together. I can't even begin to describe the mess we had. Gluing the clothespin to the round peg was virtually impossible, even for an adult. We ended up placing a rubber band around them to hold them in place, then we tied a ribbon on to hide the rubber band.
