Braided wreath made of modeling clay
The upgrade for your Advent decoration
We at Metallbude like versatility and multifunctionality - also when it comes to decoration. Our content creator and DIY queen Sabrina has the perfect crafting tip for anyone who wants to add that certain something to their Advent decorations. Depending on its size, the braided wreath made of modeling clay can be used as a table decoration, napkin ring, Christmas tree decoration or door wreath.
What you need:
Air-hardening modeling compound (click here for the product " modeling compound 500g " | " modeling compound 1000g ")
a butter knife
a bowl of water
if necessary acrylic paint (alternative product " acrylic paints ")
How it goes:
- Knead the modeling clay until soft and roll out into a strand.
- Use the butter knife to divide the long strand into two strands of equal length and twist them together.
- Gently press the ends together with your fingers and glue them together with a little water. Tip: Any cracks can also be repaired with a little water.
- Allow the resulting wreath to air dry for at least 24 hours. It can then be used directly or additionally painted with acrylic paint.
Have fun imitating!
