By:

Don't put those clay pots away yet!  Even when the spring is coming to a close, you can use those planters to create these adorable Clay Pot Snowmen!  This project from Amanda Formaro is easy and perfect to have on display indoors and out.

  • 2" clay pots
  • Gesso or white paint
  • Ivory or white fabric
  • Mod Podge Antique matte

  2. Trace bottom of clay pot on the ivory fabric. Cut out the circle and fold in half then in half again. Cut the tip off to create a hole in the middle of the circle. Decoupage this circle to the bottom of the pot.

  4. Decoupage patterned fabric onto the rim of the pot.
     
  5. Apply a coat of decoupage over the entire pot and rim and let dry completely.
     
  6. Use scruffy brush dipped in pink paint, excess paint dabbed off on a paper towel, to add cheeks.

  7. Use the handle end of the brush dipped in black paint to add eyes. Use a Sharpie to draw on mouths. Add nose with orange paint. Let the paint dry completely then add another layer of decoupage.

  8. Make ornament hangers from rusty wire by bending a length of wire in half and creating a loop. Then twist the wire below the loop together. Insert the twisted end into the hole in the bottom of the pot. Squeeze the loop together so that you can push the loop almost all the way through the hole. This will give you enough room to coil the twisted end of the wire around your round nose pliers to keep the hanger from coming back through the hole. Push the loop back up through the hole and widen the loop again.
