You can make little pots out of newspaper, paint them with acrylic paint, fill them with crushed Oreo cookies (for the dirt) and poke candy flowers into them. Here's how I make them: Lay a full sheet of black and white newspaper flat. Fold the paper in half lengthwise twice to form a long, narrow strip of folded newspaper. Lay a drinking glass on its side and place it on one end of the strip of paper. Roll the newspaper around the glass. The glass is used only as a form to roll the paper. About 1/2 of the strip of paper should overlap the open end of the glass. Push the ends of the paper into the open end of the glass. This step doesn't have to be neat and tidy; just stuff the overlapping newspaper into the glass. Pull the glass out of the newspaper pocket so you have the newspaper pot in your hand. Push the bottom of the glass into the newspaper cup, squashing the folded bottom to flatten. This step will seal the bottom of your pot. Pull the glass out and you have a finished paper pot. Use white glue if necessary to secure the bottom of the pot, then paint and decorate with the theme of the party. Enjoy!
