Creative Paperclay® Christmas Decoration


Today’s post is about a Christmas decoration that I made out of paperclay and trying out for the new Creative Paperclay® Design Team. I love Creative Paperclay® and I love coming up with new ways of making things from it. This is my third post about Creative Paperclay® in the past four days, so that should tell you how much I enjoy working with it.

2003-02-18 13.35.39 I started out of course with

my paperclay which I rolled out and then cut a shape from. I used two stamps and pressed them into the clay to make imprints and then used an awl and made a hole in the top of it and let it set for a day to dry. I did turn it over when it was about halfway dry. Once everything was dry I used some black paint to highlight the writing and painted the wreath. I then use glitter paint to cover the rest of the front and added swirls and glittery stick-ons. Once all the embellishing of the decoration was complete I threaded a ribbon through the hole at the top and voila’ all complete!

I thought it turned out beautifully! My husband couldn’t believe it was made out of clay! I know I’m happy with it. The pictures don’t do justice to all the glitteriness!

Please leave a comment or two. I love to read them.
