LEARN HOW TO MAKE CLAY-POT ELF FIGURINES EMBELLISHED WITH YOUR CRICUT
I started making clay-pot people, like these Elf Clay-Pot Figurines, way back in the late nineties when my Mom and I would participate in craft shows.
My gosh, back in the day, craft shows were so much fun. They used to be an EVENT, remember? People were so EXCITED to be there and see what clever and unique products they could buy all while interacting with the actual makers! So great!
Of course, with technology, came
easier more convenient ways to shop for crafts. Still, I miss those shows and bazaars.
But, I digress…
These Elf Clay-Pot Figurines were recently featured at The Holiday MakerFest along with the Santa Clay-Pot Figurines.
