A few years ago, I purchased Christmas-themed washi tape, not yet knowing how I would use it. Craft ideas came and went, but the tape remained unused due to my busy schedule. After seeing a decorative pot in a home décor shop this past summer, I knew exactly how I would use the festive tape…in crafting washi tape Christmas pots!
With the addition of pine cone Christmas trees, the embellished pots display well on a shelf or fireplace mantle during the holiday season. And the craft is suitable for all ages, so why not get the whole family to make one!
Christmas Pot Supplies To Collect
Gather the following supplies for this craft:
- Christmas-themed washi tape
- three-inch terracotta clay pots
- large pine cone picks
- glitter pom poms
- small round beads
- brown shredded paper
- wire cutters
- white glue or hot glue gun
- glue paddles
Creating the Washi Tape Christmas Pots
Cut washi tape into small pieces. Stick the tape around each pot horizontally in rows. Or layer the washi tape vertically in a pattern.
Then decorated pine cone “Christmas trees” can be added to the pots:
Use wire cutters to snip the wire on each pine cone to a length that fits into the pot size of choice.
Add a ball of playdough to each pot, and stick in a pine cone pick. Then fill the pots with brown shredded paper.
Next, adhere the beads and pom poms to the pine cone trees with white glue or a hot glue gun.
I feature two super-sized metallic gold pine cone picks, and a natural one. One of the gold pine cones is decorated with tiny red, green, and white beads, and the other is left as is. The natural pine cone is decorated with small glitter pom poms.
Little learners will enjoy getting in on decorating the pine cones and Christmas pots. They will especially love the chance to use tape in a craft project.
