DIY Jewellery Dish


This Mother’s Day, get the kids to try something creative, and make an awesome gift for Mum at the same time! Here’s an easy way to make a cute jewellery dish with just a handful of ingredients.

What you’ll need . . .

  • Air dry clay (any colour you like, or white if you’re going to paint it later)
  • Cookiecutter
  • Play dough rolling pin
  • Small bowl or rounded dish
  • Any other decorations (sequins, beads, acrylic paints)


How to . . .

You can pick up some air dry clay at most craft or hardware stores, but you will need to make this a few days ahead so it has time to dry fully. Start by having the kids roll out the clay with the rolling pin to 1⁄4 inch thick. Then use the cookie cutter (or cut with a knife) to make the shape of the dish from the clay.

Next comes the fun part! Get the kids using their imaginations and start decorating by pressing in sequins, beads, or write in Mum’s name with a toothpick or letter stamps if you have them.

Once the decorating is finished, carefully place the clay into the inside centre of the small bowl to create the shape of the jewellery dish. Set aside and don’t remove it until the clay has fully dried – this could take a few days.

Variation: Only paint your dish after the clay has fully dried. Acrylic paint is best for this and can be found in most craft stores. Then, seal the clay with a varnish or acrylic spray sealer to protect the paint from peeling.
