Tutorial #6 Pinterest Inspired Clay Pot Tree

BUILDING A CLAY POT CHRISTMAS TREE

Pinterest Inspired Project # 6

I loved this one. Pinned it here. Tracked it to here. Credit is given to another site. Not sure I like the one I made. It’s a bit different.  Let me know what you think.

Materials

4 Clay pots – Small, 2 Medium, Large

Paint – White or Off White for Base Coat, Contrasting Color of Choice

Brush

Circle Stencil Sponge-brush

Star

¼” Dowel (see notes)

Styrofoam block

Glue

Optional – Sealer

Notes:

  • Choose your clay pots according to the desired finished tree size. Size the saucer to the largest pot.
  • I used a coated wire stem cut from a large silk daisy in place of the dowel. Options!
  • Used a Styro ball since I couldn’t locate a florists block

Directions

 

Paint, Dot, Seal

Paint, Dot, Seal

  • Paint the small, large, and one medium pot with the base color.
  • Randomly place contrasting colored dots on pots with Stencil Sponge.
  • Apply Sealer if using.
  • Glue

  • “Trunk” to Saucer

  • Glue unpainted medium pot to saucer. Refer to Picture for placement.
  • Styro

  • Glue a piece of Styrofoam (I could only find a ball, so that’s what I used!)
  • Level One

  • Glue large pot to saucer, applying glue just inside rim of pot.
  • Levels 2 and 3

  • Glue medium pot to large pot.
  • Glue small pot to medium.
  • Glue ‘Star’ to ¼” Dowel and cut to size
  •  Insert Star through center holes in pots and into the Styrofoam
  • Pinterest Inspired Project # 6

I thought about adding a bow. What about that?
