paperclay ornaments

Dean was out of town last weekend and I made some ornaments for YOE.

I had some paper clay on hand and got to work making ornaments. After several fails, I decided paper clay is not for me. As much as I love it, I just don't have the skills for it. I'm not ever going to make is as a "sculptor!"

Luckily, I did manage to make a few things out of it which I thought turned out pretty well.


A trio of little paperclay pins...


paperclay birdie in a party hat....


And two paperclay snowmen...



While all the glitter was drying on the other ornaments, I made these felt bunny ornaments for someone else:


Last but not least is this little bird in her nest:

I used a small antique ladle and bent the handle back so it doesn't need a hanger.

I was going to embellish it a bit but once on the tree, I decided to leave it alone because the tinsel picks up the lights so well.

My little YOE tree is coming along nicely. I can't wait to see what it looks like this year.
