Easy Flower Pot Snowman and Santa with Video

Share it with others!

Do you want to make an easy flower pot snowman and Santa? I’m at it again with more clay pot crafts. Today I am making holiday decor with terra cotta pots! This time… Santa and a Snowman. These are inexpensive projects for a fun Christmas craft that the whole family will enjoy. This is a great craft that uses simple supplies you can find at any craft store. Most garden supply stores will have clay flower pots. These festive characters will also make fun gifts at Christmas time or are just a great addition to your holiday decoration. I had so much fun making these flower clay pot characters, so, let’s get started!

For both the Santa and Snowman I started with 4 10 inch terra cotta flower pots.

Flower Pot Snowman and Santa Materials

For both the Santa and Snowman craft I started with two different sizes of terra cotta clay pots, 4 and 10 inch.

Santa - I painted 3 Apple Barrel Red and 1 of them with Apple Barrel Black top for the belt. I painted the last one with Waverly Paint in the color Ballet Slipper.
