Many people make Christmas crafts from clay pots. This is a great craft because there are so many things you can do with it. The following are some ideas for clay pot Christmas crafts:

Many of the clay pot crafts you will find will be for various Christmas figures, like Santa, Mrs. Claus, and even reindeers and villages. The variety of sizes makes it easy for you to create entire Christmas villages from clay pots. Just make sure you use varying sizes and plan ahead, or you will have a Santa Claus that’s as big as his reindeer!

Once you have all the clay pot figures in place for your village, you can then go about arranging them. Use fake snow or filling as snow, and consider placing plastic Christmas trees and other accessories around them.

Tree Toppers

Some clay pot Christmas figures, such as angels or even stars, are the perfect shape for tree toppers! You can even attach things to the holes in the bottom of the pots, using the clay pots as holders for other decorations or attachments.
