A Bird In The Hand Is Worth One On The Tree

That title doesn't even make sense. But I don't really care, because I want to show you this:

I knew after seeing it here, after first seeing it on Pinterest, that I wanted to give it a try. It was not hard. Even if some of my birds do look a little like sea lions. I don't care--glitter makes everything better! Even flying sea lions.

I used Sculpey and followed the instructions on the package for baking. I stamped some of them, and some I didn't. Then I painted the little birds and glittered them while they were wet.

I may experiment with some others that are made with a different clay (Crayola Model Magic) that air dries and is a little easier to work. I've already used it on a different project--which I'll be showing you tomorrow.

If you decide to make these sweet little bird ornaments, let me know if you have any questions. Also I'd love to see them. But if yours are cuter than mine and don't look like flying sea lions, then we can't be friends anymore.
