DIY Stamped Clay Candle Holders

8 Materials
1 Hour

I seem to have a lifetime supply of candlesticks after buying one of those giant boxes from IKEA, so I decided to make a set of clay candle holders using a printed clay technique which I combined with copper pipe pieces. And they were surprisingly easy to make! Keep reading to find out how.

Begin by flattening a piece of clay using a rolling pin until it’s about about a quarter inch thick. This will be super quick and easy if you’re using this amazing  UltraLight clay! This stuff is incredible you guys... so much better than the regular stuff.

Next, place the clay slab on top of a small glass bowl and gently mark the place where the bowl meets your work surface.

Remove the slab from the small glass bowl and use a larger one that matches the circle that you just marked off as a guide to cut a circle.

Next, clean off your large rubber stamp. Soak it in soapy water and scrub with a rag, then remove ink from inside the crevices by dabbing a small piece of clay over the surface.

Apply ink to the surface of the stamp, making sure that the entire pattern is covered. Now head to my blog to find out the final steps for creating your beautiful set of stamped clay candlestick holders!
