Thrifty Thursdays

thrifty thursdays

I have tried just about every craft, but for some reason, I’ve never gotten into clay. A while ago, I got this crazy idea to take up pottery and make my own dishes for the house. Just because. But then I saw how much all that cost and decided, eh. I’m kind of over the dish idea for now, but I wanted to see if there were any other clay projects to try.

I also wanted to know if I could make my own clay. After searching for nearly an hour, let me just say that it is not that easy to find a clay tutorial. Sure, it’s easy to make your own clay for ornaments and the such, but for anything sturdy, it’s tough! But I was determined to find something, so I had to search the old-fashioned way…through Google. womp womp.

Now, this uses store-bought clay, but I’m imagining you could use the clay you made. Again…I’m just imagining.
