This is a simple clay craft idea which children enjoy because it is fast and the results can be used quickly! You could of course adapt this idea to give as a gift.


Air-drying clay
Greaseproof paper
Flower petals
Tea light candle


Take some clay and shape it into a small bowl over the bottom of a cup. Press the petals into the outside of the bowl. Leave the clay to dry.

You could also wait until the clay has dried, then paint the diya. Add the petals with a little PVA (white) glue, and cover the whole diya with glue for a good, shiny finish.
