those sunny days

Hey everyone! I'm Kristen of Those Sunny Days! When Sam asked me to do a guest post DIY for her, I was thrilled. This is my first guest post so I may have giggled in excitement and to be on Threadesque is a pleasure! So onto the crafts. I create a bunch of little things all the time that are easy and simple and this DIY is no different. And the best part: it's pretty darn cheap!

DIY snowmen figurines
-Polymer Clay (I used CraftSmart white polymer clay, about $9)
-Acrylic Paint (I used Americana, $ .77 each)
-Small paintbrush
-Tooth picks or small twigs

DIY snowmen figurines
-Create one big, medium, and small sized ball with your clay. Then put them on top of each other and push down gently.

-To create a 3D snowcap, make your snowcap, then take a tiny piece of clay and roll it out until it looks log-like. Put it on the bottom of the hat, flip the hat over and push the two ends of the "log" together and pinch. Gently press onto the top of the snowman.

-Take tiny pieces of clay to make the eyes, carrot nose, and buttons. To make eyes and buttons, with a tooth pick press two or four small holes on the small clay piece. With the same tooth pick, break in half and with the broken piece, press a hole into the middle ball on each side for the arms after they bake. IMPORTANT! Bake clay according to the directions on the clay you bought.

-Now you paint however you'd like! After they dry, take your tooth pick and on the broken side, put a dab of glue on and stick in the holes of the middle ball.

And that's it! Sit back, relax, and have fun creating!
