I saw an idea for making a bud holder using air dry clay so I just had to try it. I had a bit of clay left over so I made a couple of little birds, too.
Amazing how fast air dry clay dries on a hot, sunny day. 🙂
I made a bud holder to fit the small red glass vase I had, painted the bud holder white, sealed it with Mod Podge spray, then used watered down gray paint to bring out the detail of the stamp. If you look carefully, you might be able to see the image of a bird imprinted into the clay. Then I sprayed it with Mod Podge Pearlized Spray for a bit of glimmer.
I painted my little birds a dark blue and distressed them with white wax.
Then I added some Mimosa blooms from my tree. Beautiful!! And Wow! They smell sooo good!
