The small clay pots that we purchase at a nominal price during summer and winter have some super little uses around the holidays. They can become some adorable crafts that the kids will have fun making and you will have fun displaying over the holidays.

These little snow men are made of a wooden bead, a clay pot and some odds and ends of fabric, as well as the elastic top of a childrens sock.

They are attractive and easy to make and would make an admirable childrens craft for the weekend when boredom sets in.

2 inch wooden bead

miscellaneous buttons
