DIY: COLORFUL MARBLE JEWELRY TRAY

Marble is definitely making it’s comeback, that’s why this is the perfect DIY to add to your room. Today, we’re making a colorful marble jewelry tray. It’s cheap, easy to make and super cute. Without further ado, let’s just begin!

1

Gather your clay and take off some small pieces.

Determine which colors you would like to use and start rolling the pieces until you’re left with long strokes of clay.

For this tray, I decided to go with white, pink and purple. I kept molding and rolling until I had 2 strokes of each color. The size is really up to you. The longer your strokes, the bigger your tray will be.

Place the strokes next to each other in random order.

Take your strokes and twist them.

Once you’ve twisted your strokes, you’ll be left with one big stroke. Roll this one again.

6

Rip your stroke into two pieces. Put them together and twist again. Once you’ve twisted your stroke, roll it. Basically, you’re just repeating what you just did.

Roll the stroke of clay in your hand and create a ball.

Use a heavy object to flatten your ball. Make sure it’s even. If some points are thicker than others, your tray won’t bake evenly.

Place the clay over any object of your choice. I wanted my tray to have a weird, random shape because I think it makes it extra special. I didn’t want a perfect shape so I just draped it over a small pot.

Make sure that it’s suitable to place in an oven!

Place the tray in the oven. You’ll find the temperatures and timing on the package of your clay. It’s different for all types of clay. Mine said so preheat the oven to 110°c and leave it in for 30min.

This DIY may seem a bit complicated, but it’s really not! Just read these steps carefully and you’ll have a cute jewelry tray in no time. Color and quantity are up to you! Create as many trays as you want, and use any color you’d like. I finished my tray by adding a thin line of white paint just to make it seem more sophisticated. This is absolutely not necessary but it’s possible. This is how my tray turned out:

I’m so pleased with how this turned out! Definitely going to make a lot more of these. You can put jewelry, hair ties, money or lipsticks in this tray. So cute and so pretty!
