DIY Botanical-Imprinted Clay Jewelry Dishes

Create a unique and personalized space for your jewelry with the DIY Botanical-Imprinted Clay Jewelry Dishes! Using air-dry clay and natural botanicals, you can create intricately detailed and beautiful designs that reflect your personal style. Simply press leaves, flowers, or branches into the clay, let it dry, and paint with vibrant colors to create a one-of-a-kind jewelry dish that's both functional and decorative.

You Will Need

  • fresh or dried botanicals
  • a block of white polymer clay
  • oven
  • acrylic paint
  • small tipped paint brush
  • Mod Podge
  • foam brush

To Make

  1. Gather your favorite botanicals. Those with firm petals and stems work best.
  2. On a flat, clean surface, mold the white polymer clay into the size and shape you desire. (4"-5" is a good diameter for round jewelry dishes.)
  3. Press lavender sprigs into the clay in interesting curves.
  4. Bake them in the oven at 175 degrees F for 15 min. Let cool completely.
  5. Paint the imprint with acrylic paint. Let dry completely, a minimum 1 hour.
  6. Cover with two coats of Mod Podge using a disposable foam brush, letting each coat dry for a minimum 1 hour.
