DIY Clay Wrapped Pots


Need some crafty storage containers? Turn ordinary tin cans into these charming clay wrapped pots by Portia of Makery.

I love me a pot, jar, “caddy”. I like coralling things together and having little places for everything; keeps me CALM; and pots are perfect for that. If it can be a pretty pot, then I’m a very happy bunny indeed…


All you need for this project is air dry clay and some tin cans to wrap it around, and voilà! You’ve got some stunning new clay pots! For more info on this process be sure to take a look at Portia’s air dry clay bowls project.
