DIY Clay Tray

Also helps to sing patty cake while making this…

ClayTray7I can’t remember the last time I played with clay! But there was something about this pack of clay that spoke to me as I walked past it in the aisle at Michael’s.

The amazing thing about oven bake clay is you can literally make anything you want including a fantastic new tray for your bracelets, keys or anything else you want to place on a tray.

What you will need is:

  • A pack of oven bake clay
  • Paint and paint brush
  • A craft knife
  • Anything you want to use to shape, mold or impress on the clay


I started out kneading my clay to get it ready to mold.

After the plate and clay had cooled, I used a spatula to remove the the clay tray and began painting with my multi-purpose paint. I painted about 3 coats to give it solid coverage.

With a white gel pen, I then drew some fun polka dots and my initials in the middle just in case someone tries to claim it as theirs.

This may be as easy as a kindergarden craft but so much more sassier! Enjoy!
