If you’re one for unconventional decor, you’ll love these unique homemade clay ornaments. I love the way the brushed metallic gilding adds depth and dimension; it also adds that festive touch! The best part? Once the holidays are over, you can still use the homemade clay ornaments to decorate your home.
Feather Homemade Clay Ornaments Supplies:
- Access to an Oven.
- White Oven-Bake Polymer Clay (2 oz or 1.75 lb depending on how many you are making).
- Parchment Paper and Metal Cookie Sheet.
- Wood Rolling Pin.
- Liquid Gilding (I used Brass – Silver and Gold are available, too!).
- X-Acto Knife.
- Thin Paintbrush.
- Darice Black Suede Lace.
- Craft Scissors.
I found that the best method was to cut both partially through the clay and completely through it. I randomly alternated between the two. No two real feathers are alike and perfectly symmetrical…so, the more random, the better!
