Guest Post: Clay Pot | DIY

Hillary from The Painted Arrow is here to share with you a cute and simple DIY while I am still away in India.

“I saw these cute tiny clay pots on pinterest and instantly fell in love. i love the quirky style, so the handmade pots were a must.”

 S U P P L I E S : oven baked clay, melon baller, acrylic paint ,paint brush

D I R E C T I O N S :

so all oven baked clay is kind of hard. word of advice, be patient. it softens as you play with it in your hands. i wanted the pots small, but bigger than the ones i saw on pinterest. so i used a whole block of clay. for these pots, i rolled both into a ball, then molded it into the shape i wanted, then scooped out the center with the melon baller. next i baked them at 275 degrees for 25 min. let them cool for a couple hours, then paint!

I think they speak for themselves. so cute!
