Clay pot crafts are a fun way to enjoy time with your children or to turn those boring old clay pots into beautiful pots again. Here are some fun clay pot crafts anyone can enjoy:
If you want to involve your kids in a fun craft, try making terracotta clay pot wind chimes with them. They are pretty easy to make and your kids will love displaying their work to their grandparents and friends. Here are a few materials you will need to get started:
Five or six 2 inch terracotta pots.
Plastic craft lace.
Beads. Any size bead will work.
Acrylic paint and brushes.
Stencils, stickers or anything else you want to use to decorate the clay pots.
Now its time to transform the clay pots into wind chimes. Start by painting the clay pots with a variety of colors. Then, let the pots dry (usually about 30 minutes). Thread the lace through the drainage hole in the bottom of the clay pot and attach the bell inside. Then you will add the rest of the pots, putting about 5 beads between each. Make a loop at the bottom of each pot to prevent the clay pots from falling. Make a large loop in the craft lace at the top. Now you can hang your chime by the loop at the top.
