• 4 clay pots, 2.5 inches in diameter
  • Flesh tone, black, pink, and bright red acrylic paints
  • White felt
  • Flesh tone fun foam sheet (or white sheet that can be painted with flesh tone paints)
  • Small paintbrush
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Crazy glue
  • Scissors
  • Green napkins


  1. Apply flesh tone paint to each clay pot. Allow it to dry and repeat.
  2. Cut out two odd shapes for ears, making sure to leave a straight edge so they can be glued to the pot sides.
  3. Paint on eyes and mouth with black paint. Add a large dot for the nose with red paint and two large circles for cheeks with pink paint.
  4. Apply finishing spray and allow drying time.
  5. Cut a long strip of white felt that fits the rim of the pot and glue it on with hot glue.
  6. Using a small amount of crazy glue, attach each ear to the sides of the pot.
  7. Place a fluffed green napkin in each elf pot and set them on your table for a cute Christmas display.
