To Make Bookends, Pt. 2

 

     Hi there! So, I'm going to tell you up front that the ledge on the bottom of these "bookends" broke off the second I touched them after they dried. It was sad, but I thought the little child sized hands were still cute painted gold, and would make a fun decorative object for Bailey's room, so I'll go ahead and give you the how-to. Check it out below!

Materials Needed:

- air-dry clay

- rolling pin

- object to cutout hand shape with, I used an old pen

- gold spray paint

Directions:

Step one - Roll out golf ball sized balls of clay flat with your rolling pin.

Step two - Outline a small hand shape in your clay and remove the excess. Once dry, paint gold and find a cute place for them. Enjoy!
