Here’s the Dirt…Handmade Easter Baskets by The Clay Pot

Handmade Easter Baskets
by
The Clay Pot
It was so much fun making these handmade…
and I might add…organic looking
Easter Baskets.
They are so simple to make.
Take any kind of paper…
(we used white packing material)
Cut or rip the paper into strips.
Mix equal parts basic school glue and water.
Cover a deep salad or cereal bowl complely with cellophane.
Dip you paper strips in the glue/water mixture and lay strips over bowl.
Continue until your bowl is completely covered.
Let dry for 24 hours…
Carefully, lift paper basket off of bowl…separating you paper from you cellophane.
Add grass and eggs!
Display and enjoy!

Here’s the Dirt…"Step Up To The Plate!"

“Step Up To The Plate”
Here’s a fun easy way to add some WOW to a wall…
You can use any assortment of salad plates.
I always group them on the floor first
to see how the colors work together…
using peel off velcro…
peel and stick. 
I  like placing them close together on a wall,
actually touching,
that way, you don’t even need a tape measure.
WOW!

Here’s the Dirt…"The Jumpster"









“The Jumpster”
We recently had a party in Riverview Park for our”Camp Joe Joe’s”
summer campers and their families & friends.
We created this fun photo shoot of a roller coaster…
“The Jumpster”.
I made it out of plywood, pvc pipe and a little red paint.
I printed letters on my computer
and cut them out and glued them to the front.
As you can tell…it was a big hit!

Here’s the Dirt…"Carnival Ticket Bugs" by Normal Park School Students





“Carnival Ticket Bugs”
These are just too cute not to share…
Here is just a sampling of the 250 “Bugs”
students from Normal Park School in
Chattanooga, TN created this past
Saturday at our “Folk Art Bug Workshop”
held in the IMAX at The Tennessee Aquarium.
The bugs will be used with the decorations for next
week’s national convention of zoo and aquarium
dignitaries being held this year in Chattanooga.
It’s amazing when you show the kids a simple idea
of using “Carnival Tickets” they come up with these
wonderful whimsical bugs!
Thanks to everyone who participated!

Here’s the Dirt…"Carnival Ticket Flowers"


“Carnival Ticket Flowers”
These are so fun to make!
I made these yesterday to hang on
bare branches in my shop.
All you need are carnival tickets, a glue gun,
buttons and some kind of hook.
If you want to make your “flowers”
have stems simply glue some sort of branch
or stick to the back and hide
with moss.
Carnival Ticket Flowers…
quirky and cute!
