I definitely have a habit of leaving bobby pins, earrings, hair ties, and rings all over my house. It’s great to have DIY ring dishes strategically placed to catch all of these miscellaneous items, or they would inevitably get lost! Once a week I go around and collect everything and put it away. So many bobby pins have been saved this way, and yes, “most” of my earrings are still in pairs!
Lately, I have been making lots of things with clay. It’s so relaxing to just chill out and mold a new project. Polymer clay is definitely the easiest to work with. This man-made clay is extremely malleable and requires almost no kneading. Plus, it comes in so many fun colors, giving you endless options for crafting!
I chose a couple of soft tones for these ring dishes and rolled the clay into “snakes.” Then I just wrapped the clay into dish shapes and baked them. I used a gold gilding to create a splatter pattern, adding a little extra “pretty” to our dishes. Let’s get to making, friends!!
Supplies needed for clay ring dish:
A few colors of polymer clay in 2oz packages
A heatproof bowl
Oven to bake clay in
Step one: Roll out one package of clay into a snake that’s about 1/3 inch thick.
Step two: Begin coiling the clay snake about 4 or 5 times, place the coil into the baking bowl, then continue to coil the rest of the clay into a dish shape.
Step three: Bake the dish in the bowl according to the package.
Step four: Once the clay ring dish has cooled, dip your paint brush into the gilding and begin splattering the paint on top of the dish. Let dry.
That’s it! I hope you love this clay ring dish craft! Don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest for more crafty inspiration!
