Step by Step Instructions:

1.  Make A Set of Roses

You will make a set of two roses as close to the same size as possible.  To show you how quick and easy they are to make, I created a short, impromptu video tutorial for you guys while my husband watched football last night.  You can watch it below


.


Once your flowers are made, allow them to dry overnight.


2.  Paint

There's lots of options you can take for painting your roses.  To paint mine, I brushed on two coats of acrylic craft paint and then sealed them with a topcoat of clear fingernail polish to help make them more rain resistant.  Originally I had planned on spray painting them with clear enamel (in lieu of using finger polish) but it was was just TOO cold for me to go outside tonight. Apparently Mother Nature missed the memo informing her that I live in the south and that we don't "do" cold here. Aye, yai, yai! You could also try skipping the acrylic paint all together and using only finger polish in whatever shade you desire.


3. Add Earring Hardware

Once the flowers are completely dry, glue post earring findings to the back using a strong glue (according to manufacturer's direction).  I bought the findings off Ebay but you can also find them in some craft stores.  Add a pair of earring backs to the posts once the glue dries and you're all done.

  10. This is such a great cute idea. I wonder if the clay is light enough to create hairbands with it? Have you tried to use clay with hairbands or crunchies?

    1. That's a fantastic idea! This clay is definitely light weight enough to make embellishments for hair accessories! You could also make it any shape you want and then glue a hair clip to the back and make a barrette. I used to make hair bows from felt and fabric for my daughter when she was younger and this would be perfect for that. Again, LOVE that idea! Thank you so much for stopping by! :)
