For one of my friends birthdays, I made her a "Plants VS. Zombies" pot plant.
She's a big fan of the game and bringing the concept together in a simple way produced good results.
I used a polystyrene cup for the base, covered it with the clay which then hardened and lastly, I painted it, filled it with dirt and added the flower.
While doing the photos for my blog, my dog almost destroyed the flowers, luckily they weren't real.
Happy Birthday Jo!
