Supplies needed to make this frog craft:
Please note that some links below may be affiliate links which means you do not pay anymore but a portion of your purchase will go to support this site.
- Clay pots (one large and two mini)
- Clay saucer (fits on top of large clay pot)
- Outdoor paint in green, black, red, and white (my favorite for clay pots is Patio Paint)
- Green foam sheet
- Outdoor adhesive that works with porous surfaces
Start by using your adhesive to glue the mini pots to the bottom of the saucer as shown below. Allow to cure according to the package directions.
Then paint everything green. I painted both the inside and outside because I was using this frog craft as a candy dish. This will take several coats. Keep applying according to the package directions until you get the look desired.
Add eyes to the back of the mini clay pots with white and black Patio Paint. Also add a tongue to the front of the large clay pot with red and black Patio Paint.
Allow everything to dry completely. Use scissors to cut “feet” from the green foam sheet. I traced around my clay pot so that the feet would sit under the entire thing as shown below.
Use adhesive to secure your feet to the bottom of the pot and allow to dry. Your frog craft is now ready for use! I added candy to my version but you can use yours wherever you desire.
Clay pots are so inexpensive and versatile. They may possible be the perfect crafting tool!
Try this frog craft for your home this summer. Add him to your garden as decor or your kitchen counter to hold candy. Either way, you are sure to love this quick and easy way of painting clay pots!
