scrapbook cards, clay fox figurine, and embroidered canvas.
Remember when I thought I would have an Etsy shop? No? Well, it didn't last long. My jewelry supplies, on the other hand, have stuck around for what seems like forever. So I decided to use some left-over earring findings along with Sculpey clay from my DIY gift tag project. To make your own, you will need:
- 2 earring posts
- 2 earring backs
- Sculpey in three different colors
- Bead or super glue
Use a tooth pick to trace around the template twice.
Use a small knife to cut around the bird outline. Use your fingers to smooth around the edges.
Roll out your belly and wing colors thinner than 1/8 of an inch (you don't want them sticking way out). Then, draw a belly and wing on your template and cut them out. Trace and cut out two of each.
Place the bellies and wings on your birds and use your fingers to gently press the pieces to the body.
Bake the birdies at 275 degrees for about 15 minutes. Let them cool completely. Glue the earring posts to the backs and allow to dry.
Then, wear and enjoy!
Minnesota friends and family, did you see how many earring findings I have? Let me know if you want a pair! I've got time and Sculpey on my hands.... :)
SO cute! If I tried to make them they would just look like a blob. I'm such a spaz.ReplyDelete
