In terms of recent trends, it doesn’t get much bigger than ceramic pottery. Inspired by the 1970s, sculptural clay vases, planters, and decor are everywhere these days. Therefore, either adding subtle texture or bringing a full-blown color explosion to our homes. Handmade ceramic pieces from the pros can be quite expensive (understandably. Hence, given the skill and work required to make them). But don’t let that sway you from loving and getting the look. It’s an easy trend to DIY using air dry and polymer clay. Here are some of our favorite projects to get you started.
Drawer Knobs By A Beautiful Mess
Designer knobs can cost a pretty penny, especially if you’re updating a full chest of drawers. Mandi from A Beautiful Mess went straight for the DIY route. Hence, when her vintage dresser started showing wear and created these beautiful, marbled clay knobs.
Clay Wall Hanging By Almost Makes Perfect
Wall hangings are one of the easiest ways to add visual interest. They can be DIYed to fit in any awkward space. Also, introduced to a gallery wall to break up the lines. Play with the texture like Molly’s faux patina. Also, Cristina’s clay, rope, and a wood piece for a truly special addition.
Clay Name Tags By Refined Design
I love all the possibilities of stamps. Danica of Refined Design made these darling gift tags (hello, reusable wrapping). But I can definitely see them as basket labels or garden markers as well.
3D Minimal Wall Art By The Lovely Drawer
Can you spot the polymer project? Teri was looking for that finishing touch for her gallery wall and made a 3D art piece that beautifully ties in the colors and shapes from the rest of the room.
