Looking for Small Terra Cotta Pots for Making Clay People

I am so frustrated. I am looking all over for a place that sells Terra Cotta (clay) pots to make clay people and cannot find them anywhere. These are not the usual size for regular pots for plants, but smaller sizes such as 1 3/4 inch, 1 1/2 inch, 1 1/4 inch, and 5/8 inch. If they sell these darn instruction booklets why do they not sell the pots or a link to find them. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Dollar tree has them in tiny sizes 4 for $1.00 some have holes in the bottom some do not. If you need a hole in them soak the bottoms in water for 2-3 hours then using a massenary drill bit drill through the bottoms to make your own holes.

I just bought some at Michael's craft store, I bought them on sale for 3 for a dollar. Ask them and they can order them for you as well!

Also forgot to say Ben Franklin crafts has all those tiny sizes if you have one near you.

Dollar stores, craft stores like hobby lobby, michaels, etc. Orientaltrading.com might be a good start also.

You can usually get them at the craft store such as Michaels, Hobby Lobby or JoAnn Fabrics. Zig

Have you tried gardening centers? I found them there when my craft and dollar stores were all sold out. I am a fan of Sunshine Crafts, they seem to have everything and at a reasonable prices especially for bulk.

Most of the ones in the books are made with the wooden pots, or at least the ones I have and they can be found at craft supplies companies. Hope that helps.

Try craft stores. Michaels has a large selection of terra cotta pots from tiny to huge. Pricing is very reasonable too.

Craft stores or the dollar store are probably the best bet. They also sell them at home improvement stores but I don't think they have smaller sizes. Amazon sells smaller pots but they would be more expensive, especially if you don't have a prime membership.

I found really small ones for the arms at Walmart and Hobby Lobby had a size up for the legs.
