Saw this cute idea for Spring & St. Patrick's Day all rolled into one and had to share.
Start with a clay flowerpot. We sell terracotta pots from Italy which means you are starting with a compact, smooth clay pot that is known in the pottery industry as the best clay pots available anywhere. Each pot is formed and then fired in a gas kiln so they are virtually identical. Of course they start with the finest clay material.
Find a green color of acrylic paint. Here you see two different shades which make a great contrast and interest. Spray or paint thepots, let them dry completely. Line the rim around the opening of the pot with a ribbon and glue or tape together. Then drop a plant of your choice inside. You don't even need to plant directly into the pottery. So, when the plant looks a bit worn you can just pop it out and put in another kind. Super Easy!
These make wonderful gifts for family, friends, neighbors or co-workers. And, you get to have some fun making them. It's a win - win situation. Get your Italian Clay Pots right here at Arizona Pottery. Click here.
Even though it's a few weeks away from St. Patrick's Day or even the beginning of Spring, we saw this clever craft idea using clay pots that would be easy for children to do. This is fairly easy to do and would make a great gift for a school teacher, friendly neighbor or loving grandparents. Get the kids together and give it a go.
