What You Will Need

  • 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
  • Scissors


  • 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.
