This Clay Pot Elephant was found on Pinterest. Whilst there is no tutorial as such, you would need 7  mini clay pots, including 3 for the trunk and 4 for the feet. You would use a Large Clay Pot for the Body and a Medium Clay Pot for the head.

You could cut out some plywood or cardboard in the shape of butterfly wings and add some fur on top of the head. Metallic spray paint for the Elephant body and googly eyes would finish your project. You can paint on some eyelashes and toenails too.
