Creating Unique Jewelry Holders
In addition to Christmas cottages, you can also create jewelry holders out of air-dry clay, which are very useful for organizing and displaying your jewelry. To do this, all you need is air-dry clay, a pointed object, a small bowl, and some varnish or paint, depending on your preference.
To make these objects, start by rolling out the clay on a flat surface. Then use the small bowl to trace a circular shape. If desired, you can also use a pointed tool (such as a toothpick) to add some decorative elements to the holder. Finally, remember to curve the edges of your jewelry holder. To do this, place the clay circle inside the bowl and let it dry for about 24 hours.
Once the clay has dried, you can now paint your holder according to your preferences. Then use it to organize and store your necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. This practical decorative item can also be a great DIY gift idea for a loved one!
