Here’s how to create easy Sombreros from Clay Pots:

STEP ONE


Basecoat the clay pots and saucers with Straw Yellow, leaving the top band on the pot plain. Apply a second coat, if necessary. Set aside to dry.

STEP TWO


Paint the sombrero hatbands in bright colors with the paintbrush. I used Wild Orchid, Foliage Green, and Bahama Blue. Apply a second coat, if necessary. Set aside to dry.

Stack the pot upside down in the center of the saucer to create Easy Clay Pot Sombreros. Adhere with a glue gun, if desired. I leave the pot separate from the saucer for easy storage.

STEP THREE


Once dry, attach a contrasting color of rick rack to the sombrero hatband using a glue gun a glue sticks. Trim to size with scissors and secure the ends.
