Paint the clay pot with black paint. Add a second coat if necessary.

Attach the craft sticks to the top edge at the back of the clay pot with a glue gun and glue sticks.

Measure and cut a 6” length of black ribbon.

Knot each end, and then attach the ribbon to the right and left sides of the clay pot with a glue gun and glue sticks.

Download, print and cut out the cloud template.

Trace the cloud pattern onto white felt and cut it out.

Attach the cloud to the top of the rainbow craft sticks with a glue gun and glue sticks. You can use craft foam or cardstock instead of craft felt, if you prefer.

Add a face to the cloud by attaching two wiggle eyes with a glue gun and glue sticks. We used to different sized wiggle eyes for a cute effect.

Cut out small circles from pink craft felt and glue to either side of the face.

Draw a mouth from cheek to cheek with a permanent black marker.

To use the clay pot as a treat cup, fill the pot with white paper shred and gold foil wrapped candy of your choice.
