What follows are hand-picked sites that show how to make cool things that won’t break your budget or tax your time schedule. Have fun!

“Garden Implements Music” — Seeing these musical pots near the fountain in the forest setting instantly relaxed me and I can only imagine how neat they’d be in real life!

Clay Pot Birdfeeder — Simple feeder, elegant feeder, easy project.

Mosaic Clay Pot Birdbath — A lovely creation from Michaels Craft Store. Could change and adapt many ways…

Clay Pot Cupcake Stand — Beautiful in its simplicity and highly original.

Mini Plant Kit — There’s no reason we can’t make this up ourselves for gifts… It would require pot and saucer, bag of dirt inside in ziplock bag, ribbon and embellishment, and seed packet.
