DIY Easy Clay Bowls

Recently, making air dry clay bowls have been a great weekend easy project to do with my girl. We made these trinket bowls a few weeks back and they became the perfect Mother’s Day gift for my mom. If you are looking for a great project to gift or a last minute gift idea to craft, then these trinket bowls are the perfect craft for you. I’m sharing the how-to on SCJ Johnsons’ Blog.
