- 2-inch Terra Cotta Clay Pot
- 1 1/2-inch Wooden Ball Head
- Craft Foam
- Small Buttons (optional)
- 1 1/2 inch Wooden Peg (optional)
- Clear Acrylic Spray
- Craft Glue or Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Paint Brush
Wipe down your terra cotta pot with a damp cloth and let dry completely.
Turn the clay pot upside down and paint the clay pot and wooden ball head the desired colors (I made a baby girl, so I used pink for the pot). Put them aside to dry.
Once the paint is dry, glue the wooden ball onto the bottom of the clay pot. Paint a nose, eyes, and mouth on the wooden ball. For the face of my baby in the photos, I used simple rub-on decals. Once all your paint is dry, spray it with the clear acrylic sealer.
Glue a few buttons on the front of the pot. Glue on yarn for hair, if desired. Cut out hands and arms from craft foam, and glue them in place. I made a baby bottle by painting a small, wooden coat rack peg. Cut two half circles out of craft foam, and glue them onto the bottom edge of the clay pot for feet. You can also cut ears out of craft foam and glue them onto the head. Use your own creativity to add more details to your baby.
