Vegetable Garden Craft
Inspired by Torie & Howard Chewie Fruities Organic Candy
What You'll Need:
- Cardboard box (a shoebox lid would be perfect)
- Green paint
- Green paper
- Felt fabric (in the colors of your vegetables)
- Medium size popsicle sticks
- Googly eyes
- Craft knife
- Printable template (optional)
Gather your supplies
Make the veggie garden base
Find a box for your garden. Paint your cardboard box green - it might need two layers of paint!
Cut grass from green paper to decorate the outside of your garden/box. Measure the height of your box first and add about 1 inch so the grass peaks out above the box. Glue the grass around all four sides of your box.
Mark on the box where you want your veggies to go and carefully make small cuts.
Prep your veggies
Think about what kind of vegetables you would like in your garden. You can use the printable as a template for your vegetables but you can also come up with your own vegetables. It’s handy to first draw your vegetables on paper/cardstock so you can cut them trace them on the felt fabric. Cut the felt pieces as well!Printable Veggie Template
Glue your veggies together and give them googly eyes
Glue your felt vegetables together and give them a pair of googly eyes, then glue each vegetable on top of a popsicle stick.
"Plant" your veggies
Stick your veggies in the base and enjoy your masterpiece!
