My mom LOVES to make things with clay pots and I seem to have inherited what my sisters and I have come to call "clay pot craft disease." Last year I made flower shaped cookies on a stick that I "planted" in a clay pot (with styrofoam in the bottom), put the pot in a clear gift bag and filled it with caramel puffcorn for "dirt." I needed to think of a way to top it this year and came up with this brilliant (I think) idea!
I made a snowman out of a clay pot, styrofoam ball, a piece of felt, a baby sock and some puff paint. Then I painted a clay saucer, put a styrofoam disk in the bottom and glued some quilt batting to the styrofoam disk for "snow." When it was all done, I planted some tree shaped cookies on sticks for the snowman's forest. I love the way it turned out! Any thoughts or questions are welcome!
