Clay Pot Angel

With mini clay pots, kids can create the cutest figures for Christmas, like an angel, for example. With a little bit of imagination, they can create a whole chorus of angels. Each can have her own instrument or song books created out of paper. This particular angel sparkles with glitter to make her extra special.



Clay Pot Angel Craft

For this project you will need:

- small terracotta clay pot
- 3 cm wooden ball
- white and flesh colored acrylic paint
- craft glue
- iridescent glitter flakes
- white fringed yarn for the hair
- silver ribbon for the wings and arms
- red and black markers
- hot glue gun

Ages 7 and older


1. Paint the clay pot with white acrylic paint and let it dry. Brush glue over the white and sprinkle iridescent glitter flakes over the still wet glue. Let this thoroughly dry. It dries faster if placed in a warm room.
2. Meanwhile, paint the wood ball with flesh color. Once dry, glue the wooden ball to the top of the clay pot.
3. Create a bow using the silver ribbon. Let parents help if this is too complicated for younger kids. Glue the bow then to the backside of the angel.
4. Cut several strands of yarn and place them all over each other so that you have a bushel. Tie a piece of yarn at the middle to create a part. Glue this then onto the top of the head and adjust the yarn to cover the head.
5. Dot 2 eyes on the face with a black marker and draw a dot for the mouth with the red marker. Let dry.

Attention: Always use precaution while using a hot glue gun. Parents should be supervising children while gluing the pieces together.
