Small clay pot, yellow measuring tape, black
acrylic paint (flat), red acrylic paint (glossy), hot glue, white
chalk or white colored pencil.
What you do:
Paint the rim of the clay pot with red
paint. Allow to dry. Paint the bottom of the pot with flat black
paint. Allow to dry. Determine how much of the measuring tape you will
need to wrap around the rim. Hot glue the tape to the rim. Using white
chalk or white colored pencil, write a message to the recipient of
your Measure Up gift.
TIP: If you want your message to be permanent, use a white
colored pencil. Depending on the purpose or recipient of the gift, you
can draw different symbols. For example, Christian symbols for a
Sunday school teacher, musical notes for a music teacher, math
problems for math teacher, etc. Place new
pencils or a small plant into the pot.
