Make It: Clay Bowls

Interiors & Decor

I saw this clay bowl tutorial a few weeks ago and just had to give it a try over the holiday break. It looked too good to be true and in reality, it was. Check out the tutorial here and have fun with it! FYI- I used my fingers to shape the bowls to get a more organic look. Looks pretty stunning for something so easy (and cheap) to make.

I think I’m going to try this paper mache bowl next…

I’m so glad you shared this tutorial! I’ve been wanting to make gold bowls like this for so long and I was so excited when you posted one on your instagram. I’m going to get on it this week!

Fantastic! I saw that tutorial a little while back and wanted to see someone attempt it, so I was really glad to see this. Perfect for stray jewelry on a nightstand.

A really great idea! I wish more people would think about maybe what they can make for the home or as a gift, rather than what they can buy – I’d love it if someone made this for me!
