DIY Clay Wall Hanging
We’re so excited to be a part of this spring’s Make It Challenge, where a very talented group of makers were all challenged to create a DIY project with clay. We’ve been wanting to create a DIY clay wall hanging for quite some time, so when we found out the Make It Challenge medium was clay, we knew it was time to dream up something for the wall!
We chose to use an oven bake clay in a light blush pink color. Adding some pink and orange tassels, along with gold circular accents gave us the look we wanted.

DIY Clay Wall Hanging
Supplies: oven bake clay in blush, circle cookie cutters, small glass bowls, tassels, mini gold hoops, gold jump rings, jewelry pliers
And some gold rings you can find in the jewelry making section of your craft or bead store. Some ideas are these larger ones,
- Roll out clay to 1/4 in thick.
- Using mini round cookie cutters or a small bowl, cut out your preferred circle sizes.
- Poke holes with an awl or paper clip to desired dimension. Remember to poke holes close to edge of circle.
- Bake clay in oven. Follow instructions on package.
5. Once cool, lay out clay in desired design and begin to attach shapes together with jump rings.
6. Add tassels to bottom of wall hanging and hang.

This turned out SO gorgeous! I used the same exact color of clay in part of my project, too. Pinned.
Isn’t it the prettiest clay cover ever! We loved how yours turned out too!
This looks like something from Anthropologie but better! Love the idea of making a coordinating pair.
Aww, thanks! We loved working on this collaboration with you!
I saw home made clay designs in some hotel. I really wanted to make clay on my own. Thanks for the guide!
