Clay flower pot crafts – Make pot-people and pot-animals
Pot people can be made in a variety of designs and configurations. Use different sizes of used and broken pots, acrylic craft paint, a small paint brush, larger craft brushes and a clear spray-on polyurethane finish to seal the paint. The clay pots are held together using nylon rope or wire. Hold the pieces firmly together by tying a knot at each end. Put an interesting plant in the pot that serves as head to resemble hair. Decorate your friend with clothing, gloves and hats.
