Clay pot crafting is a great way to make home decorations especially for Christmas. You can make clay flowerpots for gardening as a gift or for your own home and garden. The pots can be painted and hung together with rope or cord to create ornamental decorations.

To make a decorative clay bell you will need to get a hold of two different sized pots. Buy a pot that is about five or six inches in diameter and another much smaller.
