DIY Clay Chimes

August 15, 2018

So we're mixing things up here at Soma & Ulte. We've been doing some serious reorganizing both here and in life which means we will now be posting our home interior/DIY posts on Wednesday and will be trying something new for Fridays and we can't wait to see what y'all think of the new schedule! We always love your input so we'd love to hear your thoughts!

 

Ok, now on with the new Wednesday's post! I don't know if y'all have noticed but I've been on a major diy kick lately and I'm not showing any signs of slowing down! It's just such a fun way to be creative and add something special to your home. The latest are these cute clay chimes

To get started you'll need sculpy clay in your chosen colors, something to use as a circle to trace (I used the top of a mason jar), something to cut the clay, a clay roller, leather cord, and something to poke a hole in your clay (I used a wooden knitting needle)

Start by rolling your clay into a ball to warm it up then use your roller to roll out the clay to about 1/4" thick. Then use the top of your mason jar, or whatever you're using as your circle, and cut the clay around it

Once you have your circle, cut out four tiny triangles. This will allow you to make your bowl shape. Start by bringing the sides together until they meet then begin to pinch the sides together to get rid of any lines or creases and increase the size of your bowl. Once you've finished your bowl poke a hole in the middle; this is where you'll tie your leather cord. Once you've made as many clay bowls as you want bake them in the oven according to the package.

Once your clay is completely cooled string them onto your leather cord and tie a knot under each one to hold them in place. Once you get to your last bowl trim the leather so the excess doesn't show

 

And you're done! I mean how cute are they? And they would be so cute as a mobile for a kids room too!

 

Happy Humpday!

Xo,
