  • Gather your materials and find a well-ventilated place to paint the pot. Prep the surface by wiping it down with a damp cloth before you begin.
  • Download, print, and cut the Mickey Template and use it as a guide to make the ears with foam. You can also freehand, using a ruler as a guide for the size. Make sure to cut a slit in the bottom of each foam ear so they stay on the pot when glued.

  • Paint your foam “ears” mint green to match the top of your pot. Let dry.
  • Add dark brown lines to the bottom half, creating the waffle cone. For little crafters, tape or add pencil marks to help guide them while painting. Let dry.
  • Use a permanent marker to add small rectangular “chocolate chip” shapes on both the green top of the pot and on the ears. For rainbow sprinkles, use multiple colored markers. Let dry.
  • Glue on your ears, let them dry, and plant your succulent!
