Clay Christmas Tree Luminaries | Centsational Style

I’ve talked a ton about my new ceramics pastime the place I expend a several several hours a 7 days in my regional pottery studio. In that space we’re turning clay into ceramics working with glazes and kilns, but for individuals who want to produce decor at home there is is usually air dry clay that can be found at craft retailers.

I have utilised air dry modeling clay prior to to make jewellery bowls or sculpted branches, and you can use it to make getaway tree luminaries way too!


I slice out paper templates from grocery retailer baggage to make my trees in a few sizes. To recreate this venture, these are the supplies you will have to have: 2 two lb. packages of air dry modeling clay paper for templates clay sculpting equipment (optional) rolling pin flameless votive candles gloss spray paint (or color of selection).



If you roll air dry clay just slightly greater than your paper template you are going to build a cone form. Thickness really should be somewhere around 1/4 to 1/3 inch.


Rating the linear parts of the clay where the edges will meet with a sharp pointed needle like software. Dab a little bit of h2o alongside the seam and push the edges together to type the cone.


Permit the clay to set for an hour or two just before piercing the holes in the condition. Once the cone trees are a very little dry use a rounded sharp tool to minimize holes in any sample you like.

Allow the trees to dry for a entire 24 hours then coat with any colour, I applied gloss white spray paint. Allow for paint to dry a couple hrs then set up trees in a attractive arrangement. Add flameless votives or tealights underneath to create a flickering glow!

See today’s Instagram Reel for a “how to” video clip of the method start off to end. 🙂

Even when they’re not lit they make a charming scene by day on any mantel, bookshelf, or tabletop.
