Hello! Happy Wednesday. Today I’m sharing this DIY plaited planter tutorial with you all. Funny story. Whenever I plait anything Alex is always transfixed on the process. It’s like as a girl I was born with this magical power to plait… I try to tell him how easy it is to learn, but he really has none of it! I’m tempted to get a few friendship bracelets on the go. Now that will REALLY blow his mind!
As will this planter (hopefully!) I love how the plait resembles detailed woven clay but is much more simple to make than it looks. Check out the tutorial below.
Air dry clay | Plant pot | Spray water | Strong glue
1. Wet the clay and roll out long thin pieces.
2. Put three together and plait them. When you reach the end of the clay blend together with more clay strings. Keep spraying the plait to keep it wet and stop it cracking.
3. When you have a long enough piece, wrap it around the plant pot and leave it to fully dry out.
4. Once it is dry, use the glue to adhere the clay to the plant pot.

Love that it looks like woven yarn! Really will have to try this as you can never have too many planters… :)
This is so cool, never would have thought it was made from clay! You’re totally enabling me to buy more cacti y’know. Liv x
So what glue would be the best to be used? :/ hot glue gun or like e6000 glue?

This is absolutely genius! I thought it was a type of wool string you used! Super clever!
One question, was the air dry clay easy to handle? I would imagine it breaking while plaiting with them. And also how much of it did you need to cover your flower pot?
Keeping a wordle today winning streak alive can be tough. With only six tries to guess the daily answer, your choice of a starting word is key.
Wow, so beautiful! Will try it with my girls! Thank you!
