Last week Saturday, some Girls of Grace gathered together to learn how to make our own polymer beads. It was a wonderful morning where we could learn, use our different talents, have fellowship together through a devotion and prayer and talk to one another while working our hands. My favourite part of the morning was that it was a random bunch of girls and I had a chance to talk to girls I didn’t really know that well. I also loved seeing all the different ideas that the girls came up with and how everyone has a different take on colours and shape of beads. Whether girls had done it before or if it was the first time, everyone had a good time (as you can see from the photos!). I encourage everyone and anyone to come to our next craft morning!

Make :: DIY Rose Earrings

Rose Earrings

These earrings are so cute and so easy to make. All you need is one trip to spotlight and you will have all the supplies you need to make a cute gift for a friend or for yourself.

supplies

Supplies:

Polymer Clay (I bought mine from spotlight)

Craft glue or hot glue gun

Earring backs (I bought mine online but you can also find them at spotlight)

Small piece of thick paper (optional)

Step1

Step 1:

Choose a colour to work with and break off a small piece. Make sure it is nice and soft before you start working with it.

Step2

Step 2:

Split the piece into two even halves and roll into balls.

Step3

Step 3:

Roll each ball into a snake and flatten it so it is quite thin.

Step4

Step 4:

Start rolling the clay from one end to the other. As you roll curl out the top edge a bit to get that petal effect. It might take a few tries before you get the perfect rose.

Step5

Step 5:

Once you have two roses that look quite similar bake in the oven according to the directions of the packet of clay. (I do mine for 15min at 130°C.)

Step6

Step 6:

Once out the oven let it sit for a couple of minutes so the clay is completely hard. Then glue the earring backs on using your hot glue gun or craft glue.

Step7

Step 7:

If you are giving the earrings as a gift and you want it to look a bit fancier cut out a piece of card to display the earrings. Punch two tiny holes in the card and slide the earrings in.
