      Bring a simple jar to life with this cute DIY. You can either use it as a vase or pop a tea light candle in it.

      You will need:
      • Different colours of oven-bake clay. We used a variety of 7 different colours
      • Skewer
      • Preserving Jar (so it can be set in oven)

      STEP 1:

      Begin with some greenery! Break small chunks of clay off the packs and warm them up by rubbing in your hands. This allows the clay to be easily moulded.

      STEP 2:

      Start with long green shapes and build up a small patch with different leaves, flowers and grass. Try not to leave too much space between each new element and press the clay firmly to the jar to hold. You can add simple imprints with the skewer, however the rest if the sculpting can simply be moulded with your fingers.

      STEP 3:

      Once you have completed a small patch, just replicate the shapes you have already made until the entire jar is covered.

      STEP 4:

      Preheat oven to 130 degrees celsius. Place the jar on a cookie baking tray lined with baking paper (waxed). Bake for approx 25 mins. This will set your design.
