What You’ll Need

  • Ceramic pot
  • Damp cloth
  • Mickey Template
  • Cardstock
  • Ruler
  • Foam
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrushes
  • Mint green acrylic paint
  • Brown/tan acrylic paint
  • Tape
  • Pencil
  • Black permanent marker
  • Outdoor glue
  • Plant
  • Soil

How To Make It

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Paint the top of your pot mint green. Start with the top ledge and work your way down, creating the scalloped edges that an ice cream cone has. Let dry.
  4. Paint your foam “ears” mint green to match the top of your pot. Let dry. 
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Glue on your ears, let them dry, and plant your succulent!


All cutting and gluing should be done by an adult.
