Home made decorations...

Okay...so seriously surprising myself with my home makes. Once I have started, there seems to be no stopping me, although, I will probably completely have run out of steam by Christmas eve and spend Christmas day in a haze.

Baby Bear and I had fun making clay decorations. I usually use bog standard air dry clay, but I hate that I have to paint them afterwards. So, this time I thought I would try working with fimo. I got white and a salmon colour. Boy, they were hard work! Tough stuff to work with but not having to paint at the end was definitely a bonus!

  9. Those are gorgeous. I used to love working with fimo when I was a girl. The snowflakes are darling, and the red gingham ribbon is the perfect embellishment.

  11. They are very lovely indeed! I have some that are similar. Some are made from air drying clay and some from Fimo, I agree with you that the Fimo is hard to work with but gives a better result.

  12. They are beautiful and very effective - hard work, but well worth the effect I'd say.

    Enjoy the rest of your day,

  14. Gorgeous! Where did you get the snowflake stamp to imprint them? You can now buy soft fimo, might be worth a go with the boys as it is easier than the standard fimo.
