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.

In your pot people, how do you get holes in pots?

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.
