clay pot sun-catcher

Translucent pony beads and gems come together to make a cute sun-catcher!
Step 1

Step 1 Paint your clay pot and let it dry. Paint additional designs onto the clay pot if desired.


Step 2

Step 2 Cut three lengths of knotting cord about 12"-14" long.


Step 3

Step 3 String a varying number of pony beads onto the cord to create three different lengths. To secure one end of each of the strands, glue two gems together back to back over the cord.

TIP: ADULT: Use hot glue for a quicker and stronger hold.

Step 4

Step 4 Take the other end of the three strands and knot them together, about 3" from the end. Feed the ends of the cord up through the clay pot and through the hole in the pot so the knot is flush with the hole on the inside.


Step 5

Step 5 ADULT: Slide a bead over the strands (that are come poking through the hold on top of the pot) and hot glue it to the pot.


Step 6

Step 6 Tie the cords together at the top to create a loop for a hanger.
