Yellow heart shaped earring holder

I use this to store my earrings by my bed but I originally made it to be a tea light holder.
This was very easy to make. I rolled out some clay, making sure it was deep enough for a tea light. I placed some lace on top of the clay and rolled over it with a rolling pin to get the lace pattern embedded in the clay. Then used I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to make the shape. I then used a cut away tool to scoop out the hollow in the middle for a tea light. Smooth the edges around the heart and you’re done 🙂 pop in the kiln then glaze it how you like. Use a pale glaze instead of underglaze though- they accentuate the pattern much more than an underglaze.
Happy making!
