Terra cotta pots can be used to make cute flower pot people for your garden. This is a guide about making flower pot people.
This scenario takes place outside my patio door. When the screen door is in use, we can hear the soothing water falling from the watering can.
Really well done! Thanks for sharing!
Super cute, good job! :)
This is so cute and cool, really good job!
The creeping Charlie hat is in a separate container that she can take out to water. The base is a clay saucer filled with colored tumbled glass and marbles that we glue in. The bottom pot is filled with sand for weight. The face pot has a dowel inserted through to the sand and to tie the small rope for the arms. It is a little over a foot tall, maybe 14-16 inches including the plant and artificial flowers.
She liked it so much she is not putting it outside the door, but on her kitchen counter so she can see it every day and remember "how much we spoil her". We are the ones who are blessed to have her friendship in our lives.

Now that is nice! I just love your Clay Pot Gal! You could sell these at garden centers for a lot of money.
How cute! Love it!
Adorable! I second that you should make more and sell them, Vi!
As for Andrea's neighbor; she should call the police and report the neighbor that took her decoration! We've had a couple of door decoration theft instances in our building and once found on a couple of fellow neighbors patios the police here did indeed retrieve them with a stiff warning to the thieves :-) Oh, and the manager also wrote up a warning to them that they would be evicted if such an occurance happened again ;-)
This is a work in progress for the Path Garden. We started the project and had to stop due to rain. We made a few mistakes along the way, but we're having fun in the meantime.
My friend made these flower pot people.
In your pot people, how do you get holes in pots?
By buyme from West Enfiel, ME
Most adobe color type flower pots already have bottom holes. You are just threading the twine/rope through those holes. In fact even the fancy patterned pots already have holes.
Does anyone have directions for making a police officer from clay/terra cotta pots? I've seen directions for many animals and garden people, but not law enforcement. Thanx.
Here are instructions for making a terra cotta pot man. You could paint the pots blue and make whatever other adjustments are needed to make him look like a policeman.
