Yeah its Friday!!!!! I made these awesome Teal ombre clay pots awhile ago and you may have seen them in several of my decor pics, but today I’ll finally share the tutorial. I love them so much, you can display air plants or mini succulents, or even use them as a pencil holder. So many possibles with these guys!
First things first you’ll need air dry clay, I used Crayola brand. You’ll then need to take a good amount and spread it out using a rolling pin.
Then I used this old candle holder to cut a perfect circle out of the clay, this will become your base. You can also use a glass/plastic cup. Next roll more clay out and cut it in the shape of a rectangle. It will need to be about 1/4″ thick and make it long enough to wrap around the circle you created. Mine was about 9″ long and 3″ tall. You can measure around the cup, or in my case the candle holder to get a idea how long you need to make it.
I then made another and let them both dry for about 24 hours.
Now for the fun part! You’ll need a bowl of water and some food coloring. You can obviously use whatever color you like, but of course I love Teal so that was my choice.
Now make the same water darker by adding a couple more drops. Then you’ll need to dip the pot but don’t put it as deep in the water. This will create the Ombre look.
Here’s another place I used these same Ombre Pots, DIY- Geo Wine Rack to Shelf.
