Paperclay is for kids too!

And now that school is out you might want to come up with some things that the children will enjoy doing and that will make them feel as if they have accomplished something on their own. I thought to myself that Summertime would also be a good time to make ornaments for Christmas.  I started this project by simply rolling out some paperclay and using a cookie cutter to cut out some Angels........

After cutting out a couple of Angels, and poking holes in their wings, I let them dry overnight. Next day after they were dry I used acrylic paints to paint them. Once the acrylic paints were dry, I spray sealed them and added a ribbon in the hole which was poked in the paperclay the day before.



They turned out very pretty and would be so simple easy for children to make. I hope you will get some Creative Paperclay and let your children take their projects to a whole new level, you'll be glad you did  You can purchase Creative Paperclay from their blog or website. You'll be glad you did.

P.S. You can use many things to make your ornaments out of, cookie cutters, cookie molds, candy molds, or just put something together freehand. It's all good and all fun!!

I want to be a kid in your class. I would love to make some of these adore-able angels on a stick to place in my garden pots. You are just so creative, my friend.

Thank you so much for your kind comment on the loss of our little Baggins recently. It is appreciated more than you could know.

These are so pretty. I don't have a talented bone in my body - good thing there are people like you who make beautiful items.

Great idea! Would be cute as charms to add to purses, zipper pulls, etc. if small enough. I have some Fimo clay and will try this to add to my laptop bag. Thanks!

PS: drying herbs is pretty darn easy and fun to use during the winter, reminding you of your summer plentiful!

That's such a good idea! I remember my brother and I making ornaments from salt dough when we were little but they eventually decayed - these would be so much sturdier.
