moldable clay DIY

I am all about a good DIY, so often I troll through Pinterest looking for simple ideas that I can get crafty with. I kept seeing DIYs that use moldable clay and then realized that Builder’s Warehouse have a craft isle and off I went in hopes I would find moldable clay AND I DID! I was so excited not only because I found the clay it was also a lot more simple than the clay that is mentioned in the Pinterest DIY as that version needs to be baked, the version I found at Builder’s Warehouse drys by itself in the air – no baking needed!

After finding the clay I knew I wanted my first try to be ring cone holders similar to these that I saw on Pinterest.

The application was really simple and I completed the whole thing in 30 minutes. What you’ll need to pick up from Builder’s Warehouse:

1) Moldable Clay:

2) Spray Paint of your choice:

When you are happy with the shape you have created set them aside over night to dry and then the next day you can paint them if you like.

Step 2 – I decided to use the black and gold Pinterest version as a reference, I used masking tape to cover the top section that I wanted gold.I then sprayed it with the black matte spray paint waited 5 minutes for it to dry and then peeled off the masking tape and applied masking tape to the black section and sprayed the tip with gold.

It was such a simple DIY and I think these make the cutest little gifts because if you think about it most people just leave their rings laying on side tables. I can’t wait to try more DIYs with the clay, next I am thinking simple trinket bowls. What simple DIY would you create with moldable clay?
