It’s the easiest way to get a natural, earthy scent and clear out old musky smells minus the cold draft. To hold your incense sticks, I, Anusha of Fish and Bull recommend these DIY Clay Rose Marbled Incense Holders.

Materials And Tools Needed To Make A Clay Rose DIY Marbled Incense Holder
Circle cookie cutter or lid
Poking tool (like paintbrush)
The incense holders look great without a sealer. But if you would prefer one, remember to use a polymer varnish so that the clay doesn’t get sticky over time.
How To Make A Clay Rose Marbled DIY Incense Holder
On a clean work surface, combine the white and rose colored clay together.
Use a rolling pin to smooth the clay flat which will create a soft marbled effect.
With a circle cookie cutter or a lid, stamp out a circle from the clay.
Create a hole in the clay for the incense stick by using a poking tool or the end of a thin paintbrush.
Trim any excess clay off the edges with an x-acto knife and smooth the edges with your fingers.
Pull the edges of the circle clay up a bit with your fingers to create a shallow bowl.
Finally, follow the package instructions to bake your clay. I baked it in our oven at 200º F for 6 minutes.
Once it’s cooled down, it’s ready to use!
Now there’s somewhere to put your incense sticks and keep ash piles off your furniture. Win-win!
What Are The Benefits Of Making A Do-It-Yourself Incense Holder?
The great thing about making your own incense holder is that it gives you the opportunity to make one in any size, shape, or color you want!
Also, if you’re really looking for variety and aren’t all that crafty, there are many different styles of purchased holders on the market.
However, by not taking the time to make one yourself, you will most likely be purchasing something that has been mass-produced, meaning it’s not exactly your personality type of unique…
This is why making your own holder is probably for you!
How To Put Out Incense Stick
Water is the most effective technique to extinguish incense.
A simple spray bottle or a bowl of water will do the trick.
You can also use a wet cloth. Just place it over the incense and press down firmly to ensure that all of the embers have been extinguished.
