First things first, I definitely did not come up with these ideas, but I feel like I totally nailed them!
Linked below are the three DIY’s I found (Thanks Pinterest!)
And here are my final results
One day I’ll get a real camera, and these photos will be stunning (and maybe I’ll learn some more skills…), but until then, my iPhone it is!
Some quick tips:
- Don’t get too precious about the edges on the bowl, in fact, the more ‘rustic’ the better!!
- The grooves on the ‘criss-cross’ pineapple, for some reason, were a wee bit difficult for my poor brain. It’s not much of a tip, but just go for it. The more I focused, the more I created a weird looking excel spreadsheet.
- Use greaseproof paper when drying, alfoil can be a bit difficult at times
- Definitely give yourself a bit of extra room for the tealight hole. I popped a normal tea light in there, what I didn’t take into consideration was the fact that when clay dries, it shrinks. They still work, but they could sit a little nicer.
It’s not so much a resolution, but a general goal, that I will upgrade my craft skills (and photography skils, let’s be honest!) this year. I want to do more DIY’s and this was the perfect kick off. If you give it a go, shout out! I’d love to see them 🙂
