I really like to do clay crafts. Easy clay crafts. And even the air drying clay crafts.
The air dry clay is not very expensive and easy to do because it does not have to be baked in the oven. Everyone will surely succeed!
I bought white clay from Tiger and wanted to do something beautiful. Now I hope this idea will succeed.
My idea is that I could use this idea in two different ways.
This craft idea came about from this clay pack and this glass bottle. What beautiful could I create with these ?!
First I roll the dough. I planted the plants on the dough surface. Then I rolled. Immediately after that, remove the plants. And then the pattern was ready.

Oops! I forgot to take one photo. But you probably can guessed that the plant patterns are from the pine branches.  Finally, with my fingers I rolled the dough edge together.

Here you can see the rest of the tools that I do not yet mentioned.

Here you can see one way to use this idea for decoration.
And here is a second way to use this idea . Which one do you think is better?
1 Candleholder
2 Flower vase

I think this is a cheap way to make home decorating. The clay costs a few euros. And glass jars and empty bottles can be found in every home.

Suggested materials:
  • Air dry Clay from Tiger
  • Glass jar
