LADIES! I love Sculpey clay. There is just so much you can make with this stuff.
Each year we like to make Christmas ornaments and this year I decided we would go with Sculpey as the medium. I picked up some plain white Sculpey at Walmart for $6.
The kids and I spent a Friday night making these.
They chose what they wanted to create and I helped them accomplish it.
All three of my kids enjoyed this project as much as I did.
This is one of those crafts that I could spend hours working on by myself.
I love crafting with my kids, but sometimes I like to craft alone and I plain to make a few more ornaments that are a little more intensive than the ones we made together.
Shall we take a closer look at what we made?
I made a Peas in a Pod ornament for my SIL that is expecting her fourth child.
We made some elephants:
And some owls:
I love my sons Robot:
And he also created a Christmas Tree and a star:
And my daughters Scrabble inspired Christmas themed ornament:
After baking and cooling we painted them with acrylic paint.
Once dry I sprayed them with a clear acrylic gloss sealer.
I did see this on Pinterest after we had done our ornaments and thought it was the coolest idea:
I had thought of the same idea with food coloring, but Sharpies never crossed my mind!
