I am going to share a tutorial of the most loved clay birds I like to make now and then. These make great gifts for family members, newlyweds, or Baby's 1st Christmas ornaments!
After the clay has cooled from baking in the oven, paint it any which way you desire. I painted this one mustard yellow, coated it in white glitter, and hung a few charms from the loop at the bottom. The little vile has glitter inside of it.
You can also make your bird plain, without words, and coat it in colored glitter. Or cut words from an old book and use a clear gloss glaze to adhere the paper to the bird.
I hope this tutorial made sense for the most part, if it didn't let me know if you have any questions!
As part of the holiday season I am going to be giving away the yellow 'love' bird ornament. So leave a comment on this post to enter to win! For 2 extra entries, you can tweet, or blog about the tutorial or giveaway. Just leave me links so I know!
(a few of the past ornaments I have made for some ideas to anyone who wants to try the tutorial) enjoy!
