A clay flower pot horse is one idea everybody will surely love!

Aren’t these garden decorations cute??

Though some of you might find that it’s not a quick and easy process, we guarantee it’s a fun and happy project to do especially with kids!

There are several ways to design a clay pot horse. You can choose what colour you want your horse decor to be. You can use yarn for the mane and tail but real plants look great, too! Some people really enjoyed that they even added accessories.

Take a look at various versions from our album below and be inspired to create your own clay pot horse!
