I saw a Santa ornament in a craft store yesterday that was made using a
small terra cotta flower pot and a paper mache ornament. The paper mache
ornament was actually just half of a ball. About 1/4 or less of the
half-ball was glued just inside one area of the flower pot rim (with
the flat back facing in and the round to the outside). So, if you turned
the pot upside down the ball was hanging down like a round face. The pot
was then painted like santa's hat with raised edge of the pot painted with
the snow texture paint. The round ball was painted as the face and beard.
I hope this all makes some sense. The only thing is that it seemed to be
kind of heavy.
