I needed some frames for my house and thought I would try to make them out of paper clay. Did you know miss Martha Stewart makes molds? Yepp she does and a little while ago while wandering through the local craft store I came across them and one of them had picture frames in there. So with coupon in hand they became MINE!
I was not sure if the clay would stick to it or not but after the first try I was relived and no sticking although the frame did come out all wonky because I pulled it out of the mold before it dried. Second try was much better, but then I had to waaaiiitt till the clay had dried. I must admit waiting for things to dry is a evil word with me. lol This is why I end up having a very mess craft table because I get in the mini mode and then I have to wait, so hey I grab another project and then have to wait for it to dry. So then another project. . . Its a never ending cycle but I did get frames worked on and the kit for marigolds out and in varying degrees of completition in the works. Egads that was more glue drying. lol Also if you click on the photo you can also see my little acorn caps too! I found a bunch of these and thought they would make nice hanging baskets. I made two with the wire at different lengths, what do you think? I know one will go into one of my shops, probably the potions shop and the other might go into the kitchen. I'm thinking of taking some moss and yes glue down in the bottom of the acorn cap and then making some mushrooms to place on top.
Also my blog buddy Jane from MiniFanaticus just opened her Etsy shop if you have not been to Jane's blog before please take a look. She makes some very cute things and comes up with some great ideas.
Have a great weekend everyone!
