Project:

Small terra cotta flower pot.  I used approx. 4 1/2 inch diameter but use whatever size you wish.

(I also used my medallion decorated terra cotta flower pot to make a wind chime..

if you would like to do this,  you’ll need:

3 terra cotta pots of  decreasing sizes

minimum 45 inches of jute or cord

4 beads larger than that drain holes in the pots.  I used wooden and clay beads that I made).

However, if the flower pot doesn’t appeal to you, this cane can be used on–Picture frame,  handle for food serving piece,  buttons,  hair barrette,  bowl,  pendant, bracelet, coaster, pen/ craft knife, etc.
