Clay Pot Giraffe Claypot Elephant

Clay Pot Elephant via Terracotta Crafts by Sandy 

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. A Metallic spray paint for the Elephant body  and googly eyes would finish your project. You can paint on some eyelashes and toenails too.  Clay Pot Elephant

Solar Light Clay Pots

We found these Clay Pot Solar Lights on Pinterest and what a great idea they are. They would be great dotted throughout your garden beds and all you need to do is drill a hole in the base of the Clay Pots that is big enough to stabilize the stem of the Solar Light.
