For less than $10, you can make your own gorgeous vase that would cost three times that amount in your favorite stores. Since most sculpting clay comes in a multitude of shades, you can make a rainbow of colors for all of your rooms.

Supplies:

  • Sculpting clay (white or colored)
  • Vase
  • Glue or adhesive
  • Butter knife

Instructions:

1

Mold and flatten clay

Take the clay and mold it slightly with your hands to warm it up. Then push it down with your palm to flatten it so you can easily cut out petal shapes.

Once you have the petal shape, smooth out the edges and gently fold the sides of the petals up to make it look more like a flower.

Assemble the flower

Layer the flower petals together and mold them to create one flower shape. You want to create at least three to four layers of petals to create a natural, 3D look.
