8 stunning projects that you can make with clay

I love the look of things made out of clay, but until recently, I was always too intimidated to make them myself! However, the process is surprisingly simple once you get the hang of it.
In fact, even a beginner can make everything from pretty candle holders to stylish dresser knobs! These ideas are sure to inspire you — no matter what your skill level.
1. Clay jewelry dish (h/t Honestly WTF)
This pretty jewelry dish would be perfect for holding rings and stud earrings! The pattern looks professionally done, but here's the secret — it's an imprint made with a doily.
2. Faceted tealight holders (h/t Gathering Beauty)
Geometric shapes are definitely trendy right now, and this faceted tealight holder is a great way to stay on trend! I think it would look even prettier with a coat of paint, don't you agree?
3. Gold dipped bowl (h/t Curbly)
This gold dipped bowl is simple but sweet, and it could be used to hold everything from jewelry on your dresser to soap in the bathroom! Why not make a couple so you can use them all over the house?
4. Handmade clay pots (h/t Say Yes)
These little clay pots are just perfect for succulents! If you don't have much of a green thumb, they could also be used to hold candles.
5. Garden markers (h/t Wit and Whistle)
These clay garden markers are exactly what your windowsill herb garden needs! They would also make such a great gift for any of your friends that love gardening.
6. Clay knobs (h/t Delineate Your Dwelling)
Why bother spending a ton of money on fancy dresser knobs when it's so easy to make your own out of clay and gold paint? If you don't like the geometric look, it would be easy to make simple circular knobs as well.
7. Clay leaf bowls (h/t Urban Comfort)
Believe it or not, these clay bowls were made using real leaves as the mold! They're so pretty and delicate, and they'd look even more fantastic with a coat of paint.
8. Lotus candle holder (h/t makoccino)
Don't be scared off by how intricate this lotus candle holder is — it's still very easy to make. Plus, the results are so rewarding... it's a truly beautiful piece of decor!
