Clay Pot Santa Craft

Make this Santa using a terra cotta clay pot and a few other supplies.

Materials Needed:

  • 3-Inch Clay Pot
  • 1-Inch Clay Pot
  • 1-Inch Wooden Head Bead
  • Paint
  • White, Curly Chenille Stem
  • Red Chenille Stem
  • 1/2-inch White Pom-Pom
  • Glue
Wipe down your terra cotta pot with a damp cloth and let dry completely.

Paint the 3-inch clay pot red with a white stripe around the center. This will be Santa's body. Paint the bottom section of the 1-inch clay pot red; paint the raised top edge white. This will be Santa's hat.

Turn the pot bottom side up and glue the 1-inch wooden bead head onto the clay pot to cover the hole. Use paint or markers to draw a face onto the wooden ball. Cut an approximate 2-inch length from the white, curly chenille stem. Glue it onto the wooden bead head for Santa's beard. Glue the center of the chenille stem just below the mouth you drew and wrap each edge up along the side of the head.

Glue the 1-inch clay pot you painted on top of the wooden head to be Santa's hat. Make sure you cover the ends of the chenille stem. Glue the white pom-pom on top of the hat.

To make Santa's arms, cut two 3 inch pieces from the red pipe cleaner and glue them towards the top edge of the clay pot body.
