Easy DIY Marbled Clay Covered Pens

Ever swoon while you're walking through stationary stores?  I looove pretty pens and paper.  But I don't always like the price tag that's associated with them.  Since we've been doing tons of clay projects lately, my son and I tried our hand at making clay covered pens.

I'll be honest.  I wasn't too hopeful about the results.  Plastic pens in ovens?  Urmm...  I worried that they would catch on fire... or melt.  But it didn't happen!  We turned a couple of el-cheapo-freebie pens into some fancy-shmancy marbled ones.  Ooh la la! Aren't they gorgeous?

Clay Portrait Pendant Necklaces

My son started elementary school this week.  *Sob*  It's been such a happy, bittersweet couple of days. Recently we've been creating a lot of little trinkets with clay.  (Have you seen our  clay outer space necklace and clay dream catcher?)  So I asked him to make some clay portrait pendant necklaces with me before school started.  This way I can wear them and remember him while he's away.

Let's Make Clay Dream Catchers

Here's a lovely clay craft to make with the kids.  Lately my son has been having nightmares at night.  We've been trying lots of different ways to help him through it.  Since we've been doing a lot of clay crafts together, I made him this clay dream catcher to help him have sweet dreams at night.

Make Cute and Easy Mosaic Clay Treasure Pots

Have you ever tried using air dry clay (affiliate link) before?  As someone who really enjoys making paper crafts, it was really fun playing around with this new medium!  Last month Chuck and I used it to make some cute flower and star clay ring bowls.   I really liked how those bowls turned out, so for this month's Handmade Charlotte contribution, I made these Mosaic Clay Treasure Pots.    You can find the full tutorial over there!

Flower and Star Clay Ring Bowls

Have you ever worked with clay?  I'm a clay novice and I always get slightly nervous thinking that we need a kiln.  But I was totally wrong! There are lots of great, affordable air dry clay options out there.  Since my son loves play dough, working with clay has been a really great activity for us to do together.  With Mother's Day right around the corner, here are some super easy DIY flower and starry night clay ring bowls that you can whip up with your children!
