DIY FACETED CLAY TEA LIGHT HOLDERS.in air dry clay, diy, tutorials
I'm a big fan of this air hardening clay. Last week I used it to make stamped clay magnets and this week I thought I'd use it to make some clay tealight holders. I love all the faceted gemstones and geometric shapes that have been popping up all over the internet and I've been dying to have a go at making something incorporating them myself.
Air hardening clay, tealights, a knife and sandpaper or a nail file.

1. Start by rolling your air hardening clay into a ball.
2. Take a tea light and press it firmly into your ball of clay. Don't worry about any cracks in the clay just yet, you can fix these later.
Make sure to give the tealight a wiggle. You want to leave enough space that you can remove and replace the tealight as needed.
7. When completely dry use sandpaper or a nail file to smooth down any rough or rounded edges and you're all done.

Take a look at these diy projects. There's the simple but effective glycerine soap gemstones over on the Mr Printables blog. Or maybe you fancy having a go at these plaster gem push pins over on Design Sponge and who wouldn't want to make these glittery gem cake toppers from Design Love Fest. They're definitely going on my to-do list.
