Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2005 - Crafts & Hobbies - 128 pages
Mickey Baskett--writer, editor, and expert on crafts of every kind--presents creative and fun ways to transform the humble clay pot into a thing of beauty. This charming collection makes a great companion to the perennially popular Jazzy Jars.

With a little imagination, simple crafts skills, and these fabulous projects--all photographed in color--anyone can turn basic clay flowerpots into jazzy, snazzy ornaments and gifts. Several talented designers show how, as they present more than three dozen ideas for decorating pots with paint, decoupage, and other easy-to-master techniques. Many of the decorations will brighten a garden, including the pretty Découpaged Tabletop Fountain and a Whimsical Feeder to welcome birds, which has wings and a tail cut from a milk jug and a smiling beak made from a plastic funnel. Other great items include a Snow Fairy, Cherry Tray, and Gingerbread Cookie Jar. Every project comes complete with patterns, worksheets, painting examples, and assembly diagrams.
