DIY Clay Antler

It’s September and autumn is slowly establishing itself, so we wanted to share an easy DIY that can help you make that transition from summer in a small and inexpensive way. 





What you will need: 
White, air drying clay
Sand paper 
Optional: 
Waxed paper 
Tape 
Paint 


Step 1: 
Prepare your surface and clay. Clean the surface you will use just to make sure you don't get any hair or dirt on your clay. We decided to put some waxed paper down to save ruining our surface and secured with painter’s tape (it's easily removable). Divide your clay in half and take the portion of clay that you will not use and wrap it back up to prevent it from hardening. 


Step 2: 
Make the main branch. Mould the clay into a single clay branch that should be a bit thicker as it will be the base of the other branches you will add. 


Step 3:
Make smaller branches and attach them. This is where you can get creative. You can use the main branch as a guide to add as many small branches as you want. We made two branches and divided one of those into two more smaller branches. When you attach the smaller branches, make sure to add enough clay at the point where it connects to strengthen the link. Use your fingers to smooth it out and lessen its width. 


Step 4: 
Once you get the look that you desire, let it dry according to the instructions on the clay packaging. Once it’s dry, go back to sand the small bumps or imperfections that may be apparent and clean off the dust with a small rag. A little imperfection is OK and adds to the homemade look. We picked white clay because it has a natural off-white colour so if you don’t want to paint it, it still looks rather stylish.
