DIY: Jewelry Holder with Clay

I love buying quirky jewelry bowls because I love to display my rings by my night stand. But this time, I wanted to make my very own! I decided to use clay from the Crayola brand. It was super easy to use and took less than 24 hours to dry. Watch the video below to get a glimpse of the creative process, or keep reading the steps and tips below! 🙂

Step One

Grab a handful of clay, and roll it up into a ball. You’ll want to use a rolling pin (or your hands if you don’t have one) to spread out the clay on a cutting board.

Step Two

Once your clay is spread evenly out (and is still thick), cut out the shape you want! I cut out a monstera leaf and an additional circle to make two jewelry bowls.

Step Three

Use a bowl or small cup to place your clay on. This will help mold your clay into the “bowl” shape you need for your jewelry holder. Let your clay dry. Wait about 24 hours.

Step Four

After your clay has dried, paint your creation to your heart’s content! Let the paint dry— voila! Your clay is ready to hold your finest rings now!
