Yesterday I pulled out my Polymer Clay and went a little crazy making three really fun projects! The next two Friday’s I will share the other two. Can I tell you how long I have had this clay sitting around waiting to be enjoyed… a long time. And once I just got it out and started playing with it, I didn’t want to stop. It’s so simple and fun to work with. Today, I am sharing how to create this simple and modern Hanging Clay Plant Holder.

To create a marbled effect, I used a small amount of four different colors. First, remove pieces from each color and start warming and kneading in your hand.
Once the clays are a bit more pliable, use the rolling pin to start flattening them out. I would flatten the clay and then fold it over a few time and flatten again. This helped to create more marbling. I learned about this technique from Rachel at Lines Across.
Cut a thin strip of clay about 8″ long. I had to piece two sections together to get the length I needed.
Then, it’s as simple as gently folding the clay into a tear drop shape and connecting the top of the clay strip together. Follow the baking directions for your clay. I put mine in at 265F for about 35 minutes.
Once my clay had dried, I looped a piece of string around it and it was ready to hold my air plant!
I have so many air plants and never enough surfaces and containers for them all, so this is this modern clay holder is the perfect solution.
I love the organic green marbling effect.
