Claypot Elephant

This Clay Pot Elephant was found on Pinterest. There is no tutorial as such but you can see that you you would need 7  mini clay pots, including 3 for the trunk and 4 for the feet. You would use a Large Clay Pot for the Body and a Medium Clay Pot for the head. You could cut out some plywood or cardboard in the shape of butterfly wings and simply add some fur on top of the head. You could use metallic spray paint for the Elephant and add googly eyes. Then finish off by painting eyelashes and toenails.

Solar Light Clay Pots

We found these Clay Pot Solar Lights on Pinterest and what a great idea they are. They would be great dotted throughout your garden beds and all you need to do is drill a hole in the base of the Clay Pots that is big enough to stabilise the stem of the Solar Light.
