The afternoon light is starting to warm up and we can comfortably leave our windows open, which makes the house feel bright and airy. I love sitting at our kitchen table making during this season. I’ll often play music, pour a cup of tea, and get lost in relaxa-crafting. Which is exactly how this minimal clay planter came about.
You all know clay is my jam, and I have attempted lots of different types of polymer projects over the years. However, this time I wanted to make something simple. See, I had had a really rough week and I was feeling pretty low. I needed to take a break and get some reflection in. I needed to make something!
It was so easy and calming to roll the clay into snakes and play around with different face ideas. I was focused on how the design would come about and wasn’t thinking about anything negative. Afterwards, I was thrilled with the design and couldn’t wait to share, which lifted my vibes.
Even though I didn’t feel all the way better, I did feel grateful for my calming afternoon. I was able to take a step back from what was bothering me, which always brings clarity. Plus, now I have a really stylish minimal clay planter. This simple craft is perfect for the next time you need a break, so let’s get to making!
Supplies needed for minimal clay planter:
1 pack of polymer clay
Permanent waterproof adhesive
Break the clay brick in half then roll it into a ball. Then roll the ball into a snake. Cut off one 3-inch piece of clay then lay it on a baking sheet in the shape of one side of a face. Then cut a 2-inch piece of clay and coil it into the shape of an eye. Cut three 1-inch pieces of clay. Mold them into the shape of a mouth.
Arrange the face on top of a baking sheet then bake according to directions. Once the clay has cooled, glue it to the pot, applying pressure until the glue grips.
