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…

    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!
