Creating Decor for your Home





Hey there crafters!  This is a snap shot of a corner of my pear colored kitchen. 
I just love these curtains from IKEA. What I don't like...is doing the dishes.
  ("I always get the hardest days" was my childhood lament!)  


So, a few months ago, I decided to make a cute bowl to toss my rings and bracelets 
in before I start the dishes.
Creative Paperclay ® makes coordinating home decor as easy as apple pie!

Supplies Needed:
Creative Paperclay ®
rolling pin
styrofoam bowl
acrylic paint
brush
ziplock bag
Krylon Crystal Clear gloss spray




First, start off with a styrofoam bowls to use as an armature.



Roll out your dough a big larger than you think you need.
Then place it into the bowl, gently.


Cutt off the excess...and smooth the edges!


Roll out more Creative Paperclay ® and shape as desired.
Attach...(check back in a couple of weeks for my tips on how to attache these clay leaves!)


I start my drying process in a plastic bag..
Once your piece is dried, you can decorate, paint, and embellish as you like!
When it is all dried, I sprayed a couple of coats of Gloss Spray to seal my bowl.


Yeppers...I'm not going to lose any more rings and things with this pretty bowl!

You are too cute. This was a great idea. I love the pear/blue combination in your kitchen. I just recently changed colors at home and I hate how it turned out, so might go to your idea. Hope you don't mind.
