Simple clay pots are inexpensive, freely available and make a great base for a variety of Christmas clay pot crafts. At the simplest, you can paint and decorate clay pots with Christmas colors to hold holiday treats (candy canes would be perfect). Use the base of clay pots as a lid and tie with ribbon to create a re-usable Christmas gift box. Here are some more intricate Christmas clay pot crafts for home decorating and gift-giving this holiday season:
Be Merry Pot– This is a great Christmas clay pot craft for a kind of Christmas tree. Fill the pot with colorful miniature ornaments or holiday candies to disguise the foam base.
