DIY Clay Lamps for Diwali Kids Craft

Like last year diwali I was planning on making some play doh candle holders for Deepavali. But then decided to try my hands with air dry clay. I first rolled flat a small round disc and them tried to cup it by placing it inside my hands. Pinched and pulled the edges to form some designs. Also used straws and flori pasta to make some hole and flower imprints. For the leaf shape, rolled out an oval and cut the edges using a crinkle cut knife. Later let it dry over small cup to get it curved.

And because air dry clay was hard for Putti's little hands, I made some salt dough and she made these. Used straws to make some designs on them.

After they all dried well, we started to paint them. Oh she did love painting them all.
