Craft: An Autumn Leaf Offering Dish or Trinket Tray
I was sent this crafting idea for a DIY trinket tray by an interior style adviser for a furniture store, but I think it would also make a wonderful offering dish for an Autumn Equinox altar. Although I haven't had time to make one myself yet - I'm too busy finishing writing my MA dissertation - I'm sharing the suggestion.
DIY autumn-themed dish
Supplies needed: modelling clay, a few leaves, paint in metallic autumnal colours.
Roll the clay out, then firmly press the leaf onto it so the veins are clearly imprinted. Trim away the excess clay following the leaf’s outline. Using fingers, gently curl up the sides of the dish to form a shallow edge. Allow it to dry on a cooling rack overnight, then paint on the desired metallic shade and allow to dry completely before using.
Thanks very much to Rebecca Snowden of Furniture Choice for this lovely idea.
