I've been at it gain. Crafting with polymer clay. It is my newest addiction!
I've been showing you the little bird's eggs that I have been creating, as well as some of my tags. And you already probably know that I have a "thing" for bird's nests! Oh, and peat pots! So I thought I would combine them all into some fun new creations!
I began by painting some peat pots that I had on hand a very, very pale blue, and of course I just had to add a bit of glitter as well! I then fashioned handles from irridescent chenile stems. For the trim on this one, I added cute little turquoise mini pom poms, and coordinating gross grain ribbon. I then filled the pot with some crinkly brown craft paper. And I lucked out and found the sweetest little real bird's nests for the two pots you see here. Aren't they just the cutest? Don't
worry, they are nests from last year. I didn't steal any little baby birdies home!
Those little birds must have worked so hard to build such amazing nests! Ok, for the fun part: I made some more eggs from polymer clay, and painted these a bright aquamarine. I added some brown speckles, so they look quite realistic, if I do say so myself:)
To the handle I typed on this sweet little clay birdie tag that I made. The clay has bits of shimmery glitter already added to it, 'cause you all know how much I love glitter:)
I really had alot of fun with this project!
For the second peat pot, I filled the basket with my clay eggs that I painted speckly brown.
I tied the tag on with pretty narrow white lace.
And trimmed the rim with the most adorable mini pom poms in light blue. Then I added some pretty white cotton lace trim to the top as well.
I'm going to be putting these two pots in my Etsy shop. Now I need to find another nest so that I can make myself a peat pot as well!
