Clay Pot Wreath


 the Prairie Cottage : Clay Pot Wreath

I saw this wreath over at Cherry Hill Cottage awhile back.  SO cute!!

It took a very LONG time to collect enough clay pots, though!

Simple to make… clay pots individually wired to a grapevine wreath. 

A few notes –

Even with sales and 40% coupons the pots were around $30…. a lot more than I usually pay for wreath supplies.  It would definitely be cheaper to hunt for them at thrift stores and garage sales instead. 

(If you’re more patient than me).

This wreath is HEAVY!!  It weighs much more than I imagined!  So plan to have sturdy hanging supplies available. 

You may need a few extra clay pots to replace any that are broken, say, by an errant baseball ;)
