I adore using simple materials to create simple solutions.  One of my very favorite materials to create with is clay.  I often reach for Air Dry Clay but love the color options that Polymer Clays can give you.  Today, I am sharing how to create this modern DIY Marbled Hanging Plant Holder.

Skill Level: Easy-peasy.

Time: About an hour (including baking and cooling time).

For the supply list for this project, hop over to Delineate Your Dwelling.

What you do:

To start, you will create a marbled look by using a small amount of four different colors of clay.  Remove a chunk from each color and start warming and kneading them in your hand.

 

Once the clays are a bit more pliable, use the rolling pin to start flattening them out.  I flattened the clay and then folded it over a few time and flattened again.  This helped to create more marbling.

Next, 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 specific polymer clay.  I put mine in the oven 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 modern clay holder is the perfect solution.
