Shiny hanging decorations with an elf and snowflakes
Make these wintery hanging decorations with snowflakes and a small elf from Foam Clay, wooden beads, pipe cleaners, pom-poms and sequins.
How to do it
Model a Foam Clay elf's hat onto one half of a wooden bead. Foam Clay sticks on wood as long as it is moist.
Attach self-adhesive googly eyes onto the wooden bead. Attach a sequin snowflake onto glitter pom-pom using Sticky Base and then the wooden bead on top using Sticky Base as shown in the photo.
Make a circle with a loop for hanging from a piece of pipe cleaner.
Roll small Foam Clay balls and push them onto the pipe cleaner.
Attach the elf onto the Foam Clay balls. You may attach more balls to ensure that the elf sits securely in the middle.
Attach a piece of silver thread through the loop for hanging and decorate the hanging decoration further with sequins snowflakes by pushing them into the Foam Clay balls.
Make a snowflake hanging decoration by placing two pipe cleaners in a cross in the middle and secure them by twisting them together. Make a large cross and a slightly smaller one.
Tie the two crosses together in the middle with a small piece of pipe cleaner so that the crosses are staggered.
Cut small pieces of pipe cleaner and twist them around each of the four arms in a "v" shape as shown in the photo.
Decorate the snowflakes by attaching a snowflake sequin in the middle using Sticky Base.
Attach a piece of silver thread to the snowflakes for hanging.
