Supplies You Need For These Clay Pot Crafts

  • clay pot (2" or 3")
  • 1 ½ inch wood ball with a flat end
  • hair (available at craft stores)
  • fabric of your choice
  • decorations of your choice

How To Make Your Flower Pot People

Paint the clay pot any color you would like. I used a solid color on this one and then put jewels around the bottom. You can pint the rim of the pot on the bottom a different color then the rest of the pot. Set aside and let dry.

Paint the face on the wood ball and then let it dry. When it is dry attach the hair. There are many different kinds of hair that you can get. To attach the hair use hot glue or tacky glue.

Glue the hat on and add your decorations to the hat. You can use ribbon, dried flowers, small buttons, beads or anything you would like. Attach the head to the clay pot and finish your decorations. You can cut designs out of fabric to glue on the body.

Kids love making these clay pot people and you would be surprised at how unique they can make them. They are great gifts to give to that special person.

Just take your time and your creativity will show through your own designs. Have fun making your own clay pot people!!
