12 Projects You Can Make from One Block of Clay This Weekend
Crafting is all fun and games until you need to drop $50 on supplies to make a $6 project. This week's roundup takes that problem and turns it on its head with a list of budget-friendly DIYs that you can make from one block of clay. You can use air-dry or oven-bake clay interchangeably for most of these, so it really depends on whether you want to turn on the oven or not. Which one will you start with?
