Spring has been teasing us a little bit here in Central Texas. We’ve had some crazy warm days with sunshine and then it drops back down to cooler temps.

Craziness right?

Clay pots are still a pretty inexpensive way to get all your plants potted, but they’re also great for crafting!

Wind Chimes made with Clay Pots

You can purchase a wind chime made with clay pots or you can DIY one yourself but you’ll need to drill some holes to hang your charms on.

In this example there are smaller pots but you could also just hang bells or charms from the top pot to create your wind chime.

Here’s a great example but you could paint any design that you love onto yours!
