Some clay pots and a saucer paint brushes foam (for the octopus) pipe cleaners (for spider) Googly Eyes Glue


  • Paint your clay pots.
  • Let dry and add any designs you want - we went with polka dots.
  • For the spider we used the saucer as well. We added a smile and some googly eyes.
  • We then used the pipe cleaners (bent in half and glued in place) for the legs.
  • For the octopus we added a smile and eyes and then cut the legs out of black foam.
  • We also cut a circle out of the foam the same width as the pot to attach the legs to and then glued that to the pot.
