Tutorial #3 Clay Pot Snowmen

Pinterest Inspired Project #3

It’s Twins!

Adorable Clay Pot Snowmen, Pinterest Favorite Pin

My pin is here.

The pic and tutorial traced back to here.

I wanted to make these little guys cause they were so cute! My twist? I crocheted a little hat and scarf for my handsome little fellows. Instructions for the crocheted pieces are included. Aren’t they adorable?

So, gather your materials and let’s get started.

Some of what you need!

More Pics below all Instructions!

Materials (for 2)

2 4” clay pots

Paint – white, yellow, and black and brushes

Black Paint Pen

Sealer (optional)

4 wooden stars – painted yellow for cheeks and ‘stitched’ with black paint pen

4 wooden buttons – painted black for eyes

2 – ½” Red Buttons

2 – 3/8” Orange Buttons

Glue

Yarn

Size H hook

A few strands of Raffia

4 buttons (My ladybug buttons came in handy for this one

  • Paint pots white. I used a natural sponge to roughen the texture a bit while the second coat was still wet.
  • Paint stars yellow, add ‘stitching’ with black paint pen.
  • Paint eye buttons black
  • Nestle the red and orange buttons and glue together.
  • Glue star cheeks, button nose, and black eyes to pot
  • Spray with acrylic sealer if desired.
  • Crochet Hat and Scarf (instructions below).
  • Secure Hat and Scarf with a few dots of glue

Hat

Chain 3

Beginning Rnd: 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook; join with slip st to first dc.

Rnd 2 (right side): Ch 2, 2 Dc in same st, 2 dc in each dc around; join with slip st to back loop only of first dc: 24 dc.

Rnd 3: Ch 2, working in back loops only, dc in same dc and in each dc around; join with slip st in both loops of first dc.

Rnd 4: Ch 2, 2 Dc in both loops of same dc, 2 dc in each dc around; join with slip st in both loops of first dc: 24 dc.

Rnd 5: Ch 2, 2 Dc in same dc, 2 dc in each dc around; join with slip st in front loop only of first dc.

Rnd 6: Ch 2, working in front loops only, Dc in same st and in each dc around; join with slip st to first dc.

Rnd 7: Ch 2, (slip st in next dc, ch 2) around; slip st in first dc; finish off.

Hide the ends

Tie two or three strands of raffia around base of crown, adding button or other trim as desired.  I kept it simple and added the button to my raffia with a large-eyed needle.

Proceed to the scarf!

Scarf

Row 1 (right side): Ch 5, dc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across: 3 dc.

Row 2: Ch 5, dc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across: 3 dc.

Row 3-26: Ch 2, dc in each dc across.

Finish off

Add 4 loops of fringe across each end. Trim fringe.

My button was simply tied to the middle dc of the 5th row with a strand of yarn. I used the space between two dc to button up the scarf on my snowman.

And that is my take on the Pin.

Woooowhooo.

Painted Pots!

Hat and Scarf. Love the Buttons

Close Up. Such a handsome devil.

Close Up Too. I like his attitude.
