These clay knots are a little bit modern, a little bit boho, and a lot bit cool. (Just don’t ask my husband what he thinks they look like – they don’t need to understand this trend).

How to make a DIY Clay knot
step-by-step instructions for making knot decor out of clay.
Total time: 1 day
shape Clay into long rolls
You may want to place a piece of parchment paper down first to avoid stains on your counters. Roll the clay between your hands to warm it up a bit so it’s easier to mold. Then, shape it into a long roll. Repeat this step a second time so you have two equal rolls of clay. My pieces were about 12 inches long each. Put both rolls together as shown in the photo.
Form a Knot
Carefully form a knot with these two cylinders together. It took me three tries until I got it exactly how I wanted it. Cut the ends of the knot off where you see fit.
Smooth out Cracks and air dry
Use a bit of water on your fingertips, and smooth out cracks and blemishes on the clay knot. Make sure you don’t combine the two cylinders – you want to see the double knot shape. Once you are satisfied – set your clay knot somewhere to dry. It will take at least 24 hrs depending on how big your knot is – mine actually took 72 hours to fully dry.
Spray Paint and let Dry
