DIY Sculpy Ornaments

December 21, 2011

Every year, Diamond (our dog) likes to give her favorite humans (and feline cousins) a thoughtful gift, usually in the form of an ornament. This year she made these adorable clay ornaments for everyone in our family…okay, I may have lent a hand here and there…but she totally art directed, I promise! I realize this post is a total spoiler for the family members who read my blog….so to those of you reading….Merry Christmas from Miss Diamond!! You’ll still have to wait until Christmas morning before this cute ornament is yours! xoxo!

P.S. Here are some of my favorite Diamond pictures EVER!

      Hi Julie! I actually just kinda threw these together. I bought the essential sculpy colors from a craft store (Michael’s, JoAnnes, Blick’s , Pearl’s…any of these sell a variety of sculpy and fimo colors). Then I created a flat round base (about 1/8″ thick) and poked a hole at the top so that it can hang like an ornament. I sculpted a little Diamond head (that’s my dogs name) as best as I could and highlighted her dominant features (perky ears and a tiny bit of pink on her nose) and laid that on my base. Lastly, I molded a banner out of white. Sculpy and fimo are bake in a standard oven at something like 180 degrees for about 15 minutes (follow directions on packaging). I wrote a message with a thin sharpie and added some string for hanging…and voila! I really didn’t follow any guidelines, just sorta made them…I hope this helps!
