I have a whole collection of Clay Pot Crafts you can check out! These crafts are easy to make, fun for all ages and great for group craft projects! They also make adorable mantel or table decor!
You can vary the size of the clay pots for your needs! I have used the small pots to do a group craft with my kid’s classrooms, and then larger pots for centerpieces for tables! Or you can make multiple sizes to represent your family as I did for my Pumpkins and Leprechauns!
