Christmas in June! Ha. I know it is super early, but I wanted to do something other than crochet and once I got the idea I HAD TO DO IT!
Ok - I’m obsessed with my dog Pilot (some of you may have noticed) and I wanted to make a Christmas thank you gift for all the humans in his life. He attends playcare twice a week for a half day, has a groomer who bathes and does his nails monthly and I have friends and family who have welcomed him into their homes as I hate to leave him home alone and bring him most places with me.
I thought I would make little dog themed ornaments with polymer clay:
Originally I wanted to do small red hearts that I would adhere to the back of the bone and then paint Pilot’s name next to it, but quickly realized I could not mold tiny little hearts even with my creepy little carnival hands. So I decided to make large, free-formed hearts:
I painted a heart and Pilot’s name on the back of the heart with acrylic paint.
I ended up making about (5) extra to use up the white clay and only have a small lump of red left over. (4) packs of FIMO soft made (16) bones.
I plan to buy some large Tony Chocolonely bars to go with each ornament. Right now I have them all bagged up and put away for December!
Thanks for looking!
