Make a Clay Petal Planter

Clay Petal Planter DIY


  • polymer clay in an assortment of colors
  • concrete or ceramic planter
  • palette knife
  • oven


  • Begin by making a small pea-sized ball of clay in one of your colors and place it towards the top of your planter.
  • Press the palette knife into the clay and pull down to “smear” the clay into a petal shape.
  • Repeat this process all around the top of the planter, then move down and create a second row in between the petals of the first layer. Repeat all the way down the planter, leaving a bit of planter uncovered at the bottom (this is optional as you could bring the clay all the way to the bottom if you wanted).
  • Place the planter on an oven safe baking sheet and bake at 300°F for 15 minutes to set the clay. Once cooled, your planter is ready to be used.
