Garden Buddies-Dollar Store Craft

Super easy and fun clay pot craft for toddlers and you. Craft materials are found at the Dollar Tree. The 3 terracotta pots are sold together for $1.

Meet Ms. Ladybug, Mr Froggie & The BEE! As you can see you don't have to be an artist to make this cute trio.

You will need:

  • 3-pack of Terracotta pots @ 2 1/4 tall
  • Acrylic paints & brushes
  • pipe cleaners
  • fuzzy balls
  • glue
  • clear acrylic finish
  • imagination

The antenna on the lady bug is from a bright green pipe cleaner. The froggie is a little funny. The inspiration photo used a Styrofoam ball for the head and eyes. I glued two different sized yellow fuzz balls for the Bees wings and bright yellow pipe cleaners for the antenna.

Next I want to make a fairy hut or toad house! Check out my Clay Pot Craft board for more ideas.
