How to make your Ocean Flower Pot Craft:
  • Paint the top half of the flower pot light blue.  Paint the bottom half of the flower pot light brown.
  • Mix some white glue into the brown paint and heavily apply the mixture over the brown area of the pot.  Sprinkle on some sand while the mixture is still wet.
