DIY Laurel Wreath Vase

Ever since Liz saw the sweet clay petal vase tutorial from Centsational Girl, she’s been wanting to do something similar…

So it wasn’t too surprising (in keeping with the Olympics theme and my love for laurel wreath designs) that Liz made a little laurel wreath planter over the weekend. She LOVED the laurel wreath pillow design from Less-than-Perfect Life of Bliss that I shared on Friday and decided to use this as her guide!

Liz found the rectangular planter below on sale from her local craft store…

The only other supplies she needed were some lightweight air dry clay, a stencil, one of Martha Stewart’s silicon clay molds, a bit of paint, and some glue (she used E600).

Liz used the stencil to mold the clay lettering of our house number (making it raised from the planter) and then used the large fern shape from Martha’s silicon mold to create ten laurel wreath leaves.

She positioned the leaves into their arc shapes and let them dry overnight…

Once the leaves and letters were dry she painted them grey and black and then glued them to the planter!

I just love how it turned out!

Hope you had a great Monday :)
