Terracotta pots aren’t just for planting in! I use for decorating, to put gifts in (lip balm, garden soap, hand balm) scattering around the garden for decorating, and creating some great Terracotta crafts. Anytime I’m out junking, I look for Terracotta pots and I have amassed quite a few of them. While at a local gift store, I saw a sweet little bird nest peeping out of cracked terracotta pot. I decided to try my hand at creating one.
Supplies include a terracotta pot, eggs, nesting material, glue gun (optional), raffia, and metal bird decoration.
Carefully chip out a hole. You can see here, I should have started lower on the pot to prevent a crack up to the rim. I had to have a do-over.
I found some nesting material at Home goods, and dressed it up with a few small sticks from the yard. I hot glued the eggs on, but you could just lay the eggs inside if you don’t have a glue gun.
Next, you can dress it up with a little raffia, and add some decoration. If you don’t have or can’t find a metal bird, I thought a cut out of a bird from music paper would look great too.
I added a little spring decor to the living room by placing it on top of this shelf.
It fits in well with the birdhouse and feeder
