grecian urn craft

Would you have ever guessed that this Grecian Urn kids’ craft project started out as a vase from Dollar Tree? The way it’s painted, I had no idea it wasn’t originally terra cotta. I love the brilliant addition of air dry clay handles, too! I found this project over at’s excellent craft sheets section. This project would be a lot of fun to do with kids during a history unit on Ancient Greece. [Grecian Urn Craft Sheet]

One of the things I miss most about being in school is history class. When I was a kid, I used to write down on my calendar what I wanted to be when I grew up (it changed weekly). One occupation I wrote down often was Archaeologist. I grew up to get a degree in History, and now I write a craft blog. I now settle for re-watching the Indiana Jones movies and making faux ancient pottery!

Project Estimate:

  • Glass vase, $1
  • Acrylic paint, on hand or $1
  • Air dry clay, on hand or $1 and up
  • Hot glue, on hand

Total: $1 and up
