      Clay Pot Crafts Ideas

      Santa Chimney Santa Chimney Place Setting DEC 7 By Amanda Formaro | ADULT CRAFTS, Christmas, Clay Pot Crafts, Featured, HOLIDAY CRAFTS, KID'S CRAFTS One day I was standing in line at Walgreens and sitting right there by the register was this adorable hat. It was shaped like a top hat, the hat portion being the chimney, and Santa’s legs were sticking out of the top. The hat was musical and cute and whimsical. That immediately made me think what a cute Christmas craft that would make! But what to use? I mulled it over in my head, thinking of all sorts of things. That’s when the clay pot came in to play. I knew I had a few in my supply stash, I just needed to come up with how to create Santa, his legs, and the bricks. I craft by the seat of my pants, so the ideas started coming when I sat down to actually make this. I love how it turned out, and I hope you do too! Crazy cute! :) For this project I used Sno-Tex snow texture paint, Chalkboard paint, and Patio Paint. Man I love this Patio Paint! Have you ever used this? This was my first time and the coverage on this pot is amazing. I’ve painted a LOT of clay pots in my time and after this will never use regular acrylic paint again. Ev-er. First you’ll paint the clay pot. To make the bricks, just use a small rectangle cut from a household sponge. Then put a layer of Snotex around the rim. To make the legs you’ll twist chenille together to make it a fatter piece, then twist them around a pencil or paint brush to coil them. His body is made from a Styrofoam egg. Paint glue on the fat end and cover in glitter. Put a toothpick into the narrow end, this helps it stand up in the pot. The legs go in the ‘red’ end, using a toothpick to create holes in the egg helps a lot. The shoes are made from a small egg cut in half and glittered in black. I actually didn’t have a small egg, so I used half of a ball, cut that in half, then shaped them. The egg would be easier, hence me suggesting it to you ;-)
