Clay Pot Cat Craft

How to Make a Cat Using a Terra Cotta Clay Pot


Clay Pot Craft
Make this cute cat using a terra cotta clay pot and a few other supplies.

  • Age Guideline: 6 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Wipe down your terra cotta pot with a damp cloth and let dry completely. Paint the clay pot and the wooden ball head black or whatever color you want your cat to be. Put them aside to dry.

Once the paint is dry, flip the clay pot so the bottom is facing up and glue the wooden ball onto the bottom of the clay pot. Paint a nose, eyes, mouth, and whiskers on the wooden ball. Once all your paint is dry, spray it with the clear acrylic sealer.

Cut ears out of craft foam or felt and glue them onto the head. Cut an 'S' shaped tail out of craft foam or felt and glue it to the back of your cat. Cut two half circles out of fun foam, and glue them onto the bottom edge of the clay pot for feet (which is really the top of the clay pot). Your cat is now complete.
