Kids Project: Polymer Clay Embellishment on a Hair Barrette

Hair Barettes decorated with Polymer ClayDo your children like to craft? Here's a fun kids project that uses Polymer Clay to decorate a Hair Barrette.

Have you ever worked with Polymer Clay? You can do amazing things with it:
  • stamp on it
  • color it with re-inkers
  • cut into shapes with a cookie cutter
  • cut into shapes with a scissors
  • heat emboss
  • add glitter
  • make it shine with Crystal Effects
Can you think of things I missed?

Its a little hard to see, but the flowers on these barrettes are different colors. 

Stampin'UP!'s mold for Polymer ClayColoring the clay: Coloring is easy - just put a lump of clay in a baggie, add a few drips of re-inker and squish. The kids will really have fun with this part! The baggie is important for keeping kids hands clean.

Getting the shape: the kids can have fun shaping the clay into any design they want - just like regular clay. The flowers on these hair clips were made with one of Stampin'UP!'s clay molds.

When they've got the shape right let it dry.
NOTE: this clay will be somewhat soft and pliable when dry.

WARNING: the heat tool is really hot. Kids should be supervised when using this tool. 

This is such a great kids project because the kids will have fun making it and fun wearing it.
