Getting crafty with holiday pots

A fun craft you can do over the holidays with the family…and there are so many different options! Holiday pots can be used for candy, plants, decorations…whatever you want! You may have some of the supplies at home already, or you can pick them up at any craft store without spending too much money.


  • Clay pots – any size you want
  • Paint
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Pom poms
  • Construction paper
  • Cotton balls
  • Googly eyes
  • Hot glue and regular glue


You can leave your pot brown or paint it any color. If you’re painting it, use two coats of acrylic paint.

Once your pot is ready, get creative! Using pipe cleaners, pom poms, googly eyes, cotton balls and construction paper, you can make anything from Rudolph, to Santa. Snowflakes and ornaments can be made with paint and/glitter.
