Geometric Clay Jar

This upcoming father’s day, I joyfully celebrate my husband and all he does for our family.  To celebrate him, I wanted to make something personal that I know he would enjoy.  My guy knows cool and he’s pretty up to date with the trends going on, so I decided to make him a small Geometric Clay Jar.

First, purchase yourself some Crayoloa Air Dry Clay.

Next, remove a medium sized chunk of clay from the container (and be sure to put lid back on, so as to not dry all the clay out.)  If it does start to dry out, just add a few drops of water and put the lid back on.
Then, form into whatever shape you like, I made mine into a small side jar.
Next, set your clay in a safe place and wait 24 hours to allow for slight drying.
Lastly, use a kitchen knife, carefully cut away at the clay jar until you receive your desired spare.

Once my clay was dry, it still had a light gray color to it, so I used white flat spray paint and brighten it up.  I also colored in three areas on the clay jar with my gold foil paint pen.

No matter the use you select, this is a project that would warm any father’s heart!

So regardless if you have a wonderful father or less than desirable father, 
take these words to heart and know you have a Father who will never disappoint.

that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
