Clay Succulents Craft

Thank you for sharing!

These cute little Clay Succulents are so adorable. If you are a succ lover, then having these little ones are a must-have.

Succulents are quite popular among plant enthusiasts for being easy to care for – basically, it’s the only plant I can keep alive. They are so pretty, too, no matter where you place them as long as they are receiving adequate light, even I can maintain a succulent…

Making a miniature of these succulents is a fun project. You’ll enjoy it for sure.

These mini clay succulents are great trinkets. Place them beside your real succulents, include them in your fairy garden, or just have them displayed on your table or shelf. They’ll look cool anywhere.

Oh! I made this Witch Fairy House. It would look cute with the clay succulents, too, LOL!

It’s fun to give these succulent charms away as a gift to your friends who are into succs, too. They’ll love these on a necklace, a bracelet or just as a little desk treat. What are you waiting for? Bring out these cute little fellas!

Making the Mini Clay Succulents

Start with gathering the materials here:

Materials:

Directions: 

Roll 1 cm clay balls in each of the three colors.

Then form the balls into three different shapes to create three different succulent plants. 

Cone, teardrops, and leaves.  

Flatten a ball into a flat disk and then press the cone shapes around the edge.

Bring the cones up to the center and press them together to form one plant.

Press four of the teardrops together at the rounded base.  

Layer alternatingly to create another plant.

Press 6-8 of the leaves together at one end.

Layer 4-6 of the leaves on top of that and then finish with 3 more leaves.

Poke a hole in the underside of each clay plant for a toothpick.

Roll the grey clay into 3 – 5cm balls.

Then form the balls into cylinder shapes for pots.

Poke a hole in the top with a toothpick and use a clay tool to press indents for eyes.

Roll 6 tiny black balls for eyes.

Then bake the clay as directed in the oven. This is where you use the parchment paper and the tray.

Once the clay has cooled, glue the eyes into the indents.

Paint a white dot on each eye (you can use a pin head or a toothpick end) and then seal with mod podge.

Using a toothpick, place each plant into the top of the plant pot.

If you’re not quite ready to break out the clay, be sure to Pin this to your favorite cute and easy crafts board on Pinterest so that you can find it again when you’re ready.
