Clay Play

We’re going goo-goo for garlands this holiday season! Designer Meagan is our in-house garland specialist. Her latest masterpiece is this cute geometric garland made from clay. Garlands like this are such a versatile decoration for your home this time of year. String it on your Christmas tree, other house plants, or in a window or a doorway – the styling options are endless. For help tying a french knot, check out our embroidery basics here.

  1. Gather the tools and materials listed above.
  2. Use the rolling pin to roll the clay out flat. You can use a sheet of wax paper underneath to stop it sticking to the surface.
  3. Cut your shapes out of the clay using the cookie cutters, then poke a hole at the top of each shape with the needle for hanging.
  4. Smooth out the edges with your fingers. Allow the clay to dry and harden for twelve hours.
