Plants are such a fun way to bring life to any little space. Whether they are real or fake, place them in any size of pot and you can fill in the spaces. I haven’t tried any big plants in my home yet, but succulents have been my new little project and I love how small they can be. These little DIY clay pots are easy to make and can be painted with faces or in any color you like.
These DIY clay pots are a very quick project that takes under 30 minutes total! A perfect beginner project for someone who has never worked with clay. These little pots would be perfect for a DIY gift for friends or family who love plants. These would even be great for a house warming gift for a new neighbor. So many things you could do with this little planters.
Grab a small chunk and roll into a ball. You want your ball to be about a size that can fit nicely inside your fist; just a bit smaller than a baseball.
Once you have a nice tight ball, start pressing into the center with your finger. Gently start molding your little pot. This is where you just work the clay gently until you get a shape you like for a your DIY clay pots. You can use water to smooth any problems or cracks in the clay. Smooth out the top and the sides until you are happy with how it looks.
Let dry. Once dry, feel free to paint white or leave the clay it’s natural clay color.
If you want to add some faces to your DIY clay pots, sketch out some simple designs you like or copy mine. Then paint those faces on it using a thin brush and black paint. Seal it with an acrylic sealant and you’re done.
