Here is a great clay pot craft that you can tailor to fit any holiday. Use fabric, wallpaper, wrapping paper, paint, or any other craft decal to create a fun pattern on the outside. For Easter, try stenciling an egg or Easter rabbit on the clay pot. For the 4th of July, paint a flag or use patriotic colors to create a fun, decorative pot. Here are a few items you will need to get started:
Terracotta clay pot
Wallpaper, paint, craft paper, or fabric
Elmer’s Glue or Glue gun
Scissors with a decorative edge
Sunflower seeds or Pumpkin seeds
Cut out the wallpaper, craft paper, or fabric with the decorative scissors. Glue them onto the pot in different patterns. Paint the pot in different areas to spruce it up a little. Paint the sunflower or pumpkin seeds different colors and attach them with glue to the pot. Now you can plant beautiful flowers inside your creative pot and display it in your home!
Some other fun clay pot ideas are to make a birdbath, bird feeder, planting pot, candle holders, and you can even shape the pots to look like people and animals. So clean out your old terracotta clay pots and start creating works of art. With a little imagination, paint, and glue you can transform any ordinary clay pot into a cute decoration to pass out as gifts or to decorate your home.
