Clay Pot Cow Craft
The body of this cow is made by turning a clay pot upside down, gluing a wooden bead on it, and painting it white and black. You can make the other details out of craft form or felt.

  • 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.

Turn the clay pot upside down and paint the clay pot and wooden ball head white. 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. I also painted black spots on the cow head and body. For the face of my cow in the photos, I used simple rub-on decals! Once all your paint is dry, spray it with the clear acrylic sealer.

Cut ears and horns out of craft foam and glue them in place. Cut two feet out of craft foam, and glue them onto the bottom edge of the clay pot. Your cow is now complete.
