LEARN HOW TO MAKE CLAY-POT SANTA FIGURINES AS FEATURED DURING THE HOLIDAY MAKERFEST
I love Christmas. The smells, the gift giving, spending time with family, and THE DECORATIONS! I started making these Santa Clay-Pot Figurines nearly twenty years ago when my Mom and I did Holiday Craft Shows.
Year after year, people comment on how cute they are and it instantly transports me back to that time in my life. Isn’t that what Christmas is all about? The nostalgia? Those happy memories of family and warmth.
These Christmas Clay-Pot Figurines were recently featured in my workshop at the Holiday MakerFest!
