Gingerbread Man Terra Cotta Pot

Get started on your holiday decorating. This is a easy project for the older kids to do. Mom or Dad they might need a little help assembling pots. Let them paint the terra cotta pots.


  • One 2” wooden ball
  • Nine 25mm wooden ball beads
  • One 2 1/2” clay pot
  • One 2” clay pot
  • Four 1 2/2” clay pots
  • 19 gauge wire
  • 11 inches of ribbon
  • 2 eye screws
  • Acrylic paints - Autumn brown, white, red, coral, black

  • Red spray glitter - optional

Paint all clay pots and wooden pieces in autumn brown. Using white paint, make wavy lines around the rim of the 2 1/2" pot. Paint a face on the 2" wooden ball, using a red dot for the nose, coral circles for cheeks and black dots for eyes. Use white for some hair on top of ball. Use black to draw on mouth lines. Screw in one eye screw on top of the ball head, and screw one into bottom of head. Place the 2" pot inside the 2 1/2" pot and connect all the body parts using the 19 gauge wire. Add ribbon bow at top of 2 1/2" pot where neck would be. Accent with red glitter if desired.
