So keep reading to know how to make DIY donut vase with air dry clay at home!
- air dry clay
- polystyrene ring
- cardboard tube (from a kitchen paper)
- rolling pin
- waterproof paint
Cut the ring to create a plain base so that the vase can stand then cut a hole on the top and insert the tube.
Cut a piece of clay then flatten it down with the rolling pin (not too thin nor too thick) so that you can easily roll and stick it around the ring.
Repeat point 2 and cover the whole ring with clay working it with your hands and use a bit of water to smooth it and to remove clay connection lines. You must also cover the inside of the tube if you’ll add water in it (I didn’t since I was going to fill the vase with dried flowers).
Let it dry for one day then paint it with waterproof paint and let it dry again.
Voilà! This DIY donut vase with air dry clay is so simple to make yet so beautiful! I’m thinking about making a smaller one to pair with it. I like the fact that this DIY donut vase is the perfect decorative piece for your home, either as a vase or an ornament and it suits any interior style.
