This monstera drop dish is such a beautiful way to display your jewelry and other small trinkets. Plus the template includes two sizes, so it’s perfect on a smaller nightstand or a larger dresser. If you want, you could even place it on your mantel with nothing in it and just use it as home decor.
Once the clay is dry, you can personalize your monstera drop dish with the paint colors you like best. We chose a dark teal and a light green-blue color to complement our tropical theme. Then we painted the edges with a gold pain pen to make it pop and pick up other metallic accents in the room.
We’d love to see your version of this clay craft, so be sure to share it with us! As always you can post a photo in our crafter’s community. Or use the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram or Facebook.
