9 Clever DIY Projects That Use Plaster

Posted by Meghan Quinones
Plaster of Paris is no longer just for patching up walls. You can use it to create gorgeous home decor projects!

When I think of plaster, I typically associate it with home improvement projects (you know, like patching up walls?!). That's not the case anymore!

Crafty projects using plaster have been popping up all over the internet. From pretty candle holders, to decorative vases. Since plaster dries white, you can customize it by adding a pop of color to it with a little paint! If you are in favor of a more clean, modern look, you can leave the plaster white which is also gorgeous.
