I really love all of the geometric shapes that are popular right now, but I wanted a way to use them that isn’t totally overdone.

Initially, I thought of making geo planters, but somehow I settled on place card holders (I think it was sheer laziness, but don’t tell).

I’m also still into the whole dipped trend too, I don’t know if that qualifies me as obsessive or not, but I combined the two anyways!

Here’s how you can make your own with oven-bake clay and a little paint (or if you’re feeling lazy too, you can just buy mine)–

1 | Form the clay into smooth equally sized balls for the number of holders you need. I made mine about two inches in size.
2 | Use a smooth edged knife to randomly cut sections/facets from the ball of clay.
3 | Bake the geos according to your specific clay instructions.
4| If you’re kind of a perfectionist, you can use wet/dry sandpaper to smooth the sides (I use water to keep the dust down). Then dip the bottoms in all-purpose paint and let them dry!
