Welcome to Wedding Wednesday where weekly I will be sharing DIY projects and more.
This DIY project was not only simple, but it was inexpensive as well. My favorite part is, even after my wedding I am still using this as a ring bowl in our master bedroom!
Gather your supplies:
- White sculpty clay (you will have some left over for other projects.)
- Fabric doily
- Wooden Letters or Letter Stamps
- Rolling pin
- oven safe bowl
- Stick for poking holes at top of bowl (I used used chopsticks)
- Lid or any circle to cut out the shape
- fine grit sandpaper
- Twine or string
- Craft paint (to tie in wedding theme-optional)
Preheat your oven to 275 degrees
Form your clay into a ball and place it onto a silpat or parchment paper.
Using a rolling pin roll the ball into about 1/4 inch thick.
Place the doily into position and use the rolling pin to make the imprint on your clay. Then peel back your doily- it should remove easily.
Using your lid or any circle shape to cut the clay into the size bowl you would like. Remove excess clay.
Add your wooden letters or stamps now.
Using chopsticks poke holes into the clay. These holes will be used for the twine.
Place clay into oven safe bowl to create bowl shape.
Place oven-safe bowl on a cookie sheet in the oven for approximately 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven when finished and let cool inside bowl.
After about 20 minutes or when cool turn bowl over and your clay bowl should pop right out.
Use fine sandpaper to smooth the edges of the bowl.
(OPTIONAL) I used purple and grey craft paint to paint the J&B to match our wedding colors. Then added twine to attach our rings for our Wedding Ceremony.
Always, always count your blessings
