Remember yesterday when I unveiled my latest collection of handmade pottery? Well, it turns out that you don’t have to have a potter’s wheel in order to make pretty clay works of art. Case in point, I worked with my editor at Hunker to come up with a way to make a set of decorative clay wall balls using inexpensive air dry clay as a base material.
This tutorial is geared toward those of you who might not have access to a pottery studio so you can create one-of-a-kind art right from your home. I actually made these bells at our coffee table one afternoon, so you don’t have to feel pressured to find a fancy spot to get your crafting on.
The main aspect of this project that I encourage you to keep in mind is patience. Since you’re not relying on a kiln to pull the moisture from your clay, you have to wait for the clay to dry out on its own. That said, these clay bells require very little hands-on time to make.
Hop over to Hunker here to learn how to make your own, and please feel free to leave any questions down below. I really want you guys to feel like you have all the tools and instruction you need to make this project a reality in your own home, so fire away in the comments with any reservations you might have! I’m always here to help.
P.S. I got the wooden dowel hooks you see the bells hanging from here via Etsy. I ordered the 6-inch option!
