When I was in high school, I had a friend who crocheted. When a holiday rolled around, she always had a crocheted pin in the shape of something to do with that holiday. For example, for St. Patrick’s Day, she made me a shamrock. So in honor of my friend, I am introducing the holiday pin collection. For this craft you need:
19 Sun 12ss Swarovski Elements Rhinestones
4 Fern Green 12ss Swarovski Elements Rhinestones
Orange Sculpey clay
Green Sculpey clay
Sobo brand glue
Cookie cutter or template in the shape of a pumpkin
Roll the orange clay out to ¼ of an inch thickness. Using the cookie cutter or template, cut out a pumpkin. Roll out the green clay also to ¼ of an inch thickness and cut out a stem and leaf shape. Press the stem onto the pumpkin and place on a sheet of white paper on a cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 275 degree oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.
When cool, glue the fern green and sun rhinestones onto the front of the pumpkin pin and then glue the pin onto the back using the Sobo glue. Allow to dry.
A gorgeous, sparkly pumpkin to celebrate the fall season is now yours to wear!
