Clay and Crystal Teardrop Ornament
Poinsettias are one of the most symbolic icons for the holiday season. In this project they are made from polymer clay and paired with an elegant tear drop shaped crystal, resulting in an impressive addition for your Christmas tree. The 2.50" long ornament makes a bold statement with it's silver seed beads at the center and silver bail suspended on a sheer red ribbon. Two poinsettias hug the edge of the crystal to create a double sided ornament. The template for the poinsettia is included with the instructions.
step 1 - Download and print out the poinsettia template on card stock. The template contains the shape in four different sizes. Cut out each shape with a craft knife.
step 2 - Roll out green and red clay on the clay conditioning machine’s #3 setting.
step 7 - Stack the next largest red shape on top and then the last and smallest one. Press into the center only so the pieces will bond to each other. Do not push the pieces flat against each other. Now create a second identical poinsettia.
step 14 - Thread a red ribbon into the bail to hang the ornament.
