Clay Pot Cat

Clay Pot Cat

Materials Needed:

2 inch Terra Cotta Clay Pot
1 1/2 inch Wooden Ball Head
Fun Foam
Clear Acrylic Sealer Spray
Glue (hot glue gun preferred)


Wipe down your terra cotta pot with a damp cloth and let dry completely.

Paint the clay pot and the wooden ball head the desired colors (I made mine black). Put them aside to dry.

Once the paint is dry, glue the wooden ball onto the bottom of the clay pot (figure 1). Paint a nose, eyes, mouth, and whiskers on the wooden ball (figure 2). Once all your paint is dry, spray it with the clear acrylic sealer.

Cut ears out of fun foam and glue them onto the head. Cut an 'S' shaped tail and glue it to the back of your cat.

This part is optional! Cut two half circles out of fun foam, and glue them onto the bottom edge of the clay pot for feet. Your cat is now complete.

Please see site for pictures.

RIP Donna-Marie
You will be truly missed.
