Here's how to create a Christmas Ornament from a Clay Pot:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas Crafts Clay Pot Tree, gather all materials. Remove the packaging and labels from the materials. I love to use a dessert-size paper plate as a paint palette. If you pour out too much paint, just open the bottle and scoop the paint back in with your paintbrush. No waste!
Basecoat the 2.5” clay pot with Festive Green acrylic craft paint. Let the paint dry and then apply a second coat, if necessary. Paint the wooden star with Mustard Seed yellow acrylic craft paint on the front, back, and all sides. Set aside to dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary. I love using Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have excellent one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Using MONO Multi Liquid Glue with a fine tip applicator, attach the mini pom poms to the clay pot tree. Cut a 12” length of natural jute twine, tie it in a loop with a knot, and attach it to the top of the clay pot tree with a glue gun and glue sticks. Adhere the star to the top of the tree. Set aside to dry. TIP: If you do not have a fine tip applicator, place a small amount of liquid glue on a paper plate and apply with a toothpick.
Every tree needs some tinsel, so draw scallops around the clay pot tree with gold glitter glue. Repeat down the entire length of the tree. Outline the wooden star with gold glitter glue. Set aside to dry before hanging on the tree! Silver glitter glue is a great alternative if you cannot find gold.
