I've had fun making these garden friends - first I'd like to introduce "Slick"

Slick is a bicycle riding fool!

Slick is made out of clay pots, a recycled bike, a recycled bike helmet. And of course, his shades!

Next I'd like to introduce "TerryCotta"

Terry is also made from clay pots, she is seated on a recycled rocking chair and is wearing a stylish flower bonnet made from a recycled wire basket. I used left over acrylic paint, some raffia to look like straw, and  little wooden signs & stickers to make the necklace.

Both Slick and TerryCotta are held together with a set of plastic "bones" that I purchased on the web.

I love these! I was expecting them to be a few stacked pots with faces on them. These awesome creations blew me away!


Guess who's back?

I saw the site that sold these a while back and I was going to get one they are really cute. Were they easy to put together?

Lol I don't think I have seen something on here that has made me laugh so hard (in a good way!) these are soo cute! I like the names and the way you describe them, I was cracking up. I hope you get a buy those pots on sale! I have never seen anything like this! I, too, thought they were just going to be painted pots. That is some creativity right there! I like it.

Hi, it's me again.  Just to answer a couple of your questions....yes, the clay pot people are very easy to put together.  They get a little heavy and have to be built where you want them to live, cause it would be really hard to move them after they are built. Cheesy

I watch for sales on clay pots, or find them in yard sales, or wherever. Smiley

I've seen a picture of one made out of tin buckets, but I haven't been able to find the right sizes of buckets, (at an affordable price) Cry

Thanks for the nice comments, I'm glad you all enjoy my friends. Wink

Oh my, those guys are amazing! If I had a yard, I would definitely want one. In fact, I want one even though I don't have a yard. It would be a bit impractical, unfortunately, since I live in a dorm.

Personal swaps are fun!
