Another Christmas Tree Idea
I ran accross this picture from a few years ago and wanted to add it to my blog as a reminder. It was a fairly easy one. Extrude a snake of green clay. Roll a small brown clay base and put it at the bottom then start laying out the snake in a tree shape. I cut a small star from yellow clay and put it at the top, and added little balls of color around into the holes for decoration. I am sure you can think of more ways to decorate it. This would also make a cute pin. I added a little wire hanger to the back before it was baked…with, I think, another gold star. I remember putting gold ‘rub-n-buff’ on the high spots after it was baked.
The little candy canes are just white and red snakes rolled together and make very thin. then cut and turned onto a baking tile. I just hung them onto a miniature Christmas tree without adding holders, they go right over the branches.
