Pottery Barn Inspired Photo/Place Card Holders

I am working on a project and I might need some photo holders.  Pottery Barn had some that I really wanted, but I decided to make some today instead of because I already had everything I needed and I didn’t want to wait for shipping.

Here’s the Pottery Barn inspiration.

Antique Bar Place Card Holder, Set of 4

To make mine, I used silver colored clay that you mold and bake along with some rubber stamps to make a texture/design in my photo holder. 


You can find different kinds of this clay at craft stores.  It’s inexpensive and fairly easy to work with once you get it warmed and kneaded.  I shaped my clay, put a slit in the top, gave it a stamp and then baked them in the oven. 

They turned out like this.


I used black glaze to help show the detail of the stamp and  then placed vintage camera ads I printed today into them.




I know they don’t really look much like the PB version, but they are similar and they do the job.
