I’ll admit that I totally stole this idea from one of my friends last year. She made these clay pot trees with her daughters, and I thought they were really adorable. (Thanks for the idea, Jenn!) Trinity and I made on for my mom, and my sister-in-law loved it! She asked for her own, and I have finally gotten around to making it.
Well, I finally gave Trinity the things to make it. All I did was help with the hot glue gun.
To make this project, you’ll need:
- 3-4 clay pots in consecutive sizes. I started with the smallest one I could find, and went up from there. Obviously I used 3 for this one, but I used 4 for my mom’s tree.
- Green Craft Paint. I used a glittery green, but plain green would work, too.
- Multicolored pom poms.
- (Optional) Star Cutouts. I had these given to me, but I just put a big pom pom on the top of the other one.
- Glue Gun
Glue the pots together and decorate them with the pom poms.
That’s it. It’s really easy! Trinity is 12, so she knows how to work around hot glue, but you could probably use craft or school glue if you have little ones! It’ll just take longer to dry.
