Materials Required

  • A plain cardboard sheet
  • A pair of scissors
  • A black sketch pen
  • Clay doughs in different colours
  • Toothpicks


Step 1: Starting With The Cardboard Sheet

Start With The Cardboard Sheet- Creating Artistic Clay Tree Pieces For Novices

Take a plain cardboard sheet and cut a circle out of it. Place the cardboard sheet on the table. Now, make a vertical three trunk throughout the middle section of the sheet. The trunk should be thick at the bottom while getting thinner throughout the upper section. Draw four branches on the left side of the trunk and five branches on the right side of the trunk. The branches should be thin and a little curved. See the picture below for reference.

Step 2: Working With The Clay Dough

Stick the clay at the bottom of the cardboard sheet right below the tree trunk. Place the mould in a way that the entire bottom circumference gets an equal share of the mould as shown in the picture below.

Step 4: Making Marks On The Mould

Take some blue clay dough and mould some balls out and place them on the branches as well. Now, mould out some more balls out of red clay dough and place them on the branches drawn on the sheet. Finally, repeat the process on some pink clay dough and place them on the branches too. These balls should be placed at the tip ends of the branches. See the picture below for reference.

Mould similar balls out of white, dark blue, green and purple clay doughs.

The tree now has plenty of decorations and beautiful ground beneath as well.
