DIY Owl Christmas Ornament

Standard

Welcome to Christmas/holiday fun series-2 🙂

This year holiday spirits are high, it is just November and I am almost done on DIYing christmas gifts and can’t wait to finish christmas ornaments.

Well, in my search for DIY ornaments, I found really cool way of making owls @ Paging fun mums. It is super easy and using a few common supplies and some polymer clay/air dry clay you have cute little ornaments ready 😀

Do you love our cute little owl family 😉

How you make it:

Step 1 : Simply roll a ball of polymer clay/air dry clay  and cut into a circle using a bowl/mason jar cap.

When I was rolling into circle I added small pieces of contrasting clay for pattern. For grey owl ornament, added white and for red ornament, I added yellow and further red on it and rolled it all together.

Step 2: Fold the sides of the circle to form “wings” and top to form “face” .

Step 3: Stamp eyes using the lid of the marker and some details using toothpick.

Step 4: Bake it for 20 minutes @ 270 F and let it cool.

Step 5: Use metallic markers or acrylic paint to highlight the details.

And HOOT  HOOT HOORAY!!!

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
