Sweet Vivian of Viv's Whimsey.blogspot.com is hosting a SECRET Leprechaun Swap! I love this idea!!!
I just love her blog and the inspiration I find within her posts is LUCKY for me!
We aren't to divulge our swap partner, but we can reveal what we made for them. I had a good time making my lucky leprechaun! He can be a bluebird, can't he?
I used paper clay, styrofoam, and a toothpick to make my little bird. I think it was Viv who first taught us how to use this clay!
I let it dry for 2 days. Then, this morning I painted them Blue Jay blue.
I drew on the eyes with a mechanical pencil and painted them in. Ladies...my eyes aren't what they used to be! I had to close one eye to paint because I have mono- vision!
Then, I floated on some pink cheeks.
I drew my patterns on old mail! Then traced onto a favorite piece of scrapbook paper.
I glued them on with Tacky glue and embellished with St. Patrick's items.
The sweet girly blogger that I made this Lucky Charm for is sweet as pie!
I hope she likes it!
I also made a few ornaments for my holiday tree with my Cricut a few weeks ago.
And so, she will get a set, too.
I went to a church tag sale Friday after work and got a box of green ball ornaments! The ladies were laughing, wondering who would buy the bright green balls. They thought they looked more like St. Pat's than Christmas! Yep, they do, and perfect for my tree.
The little cones were cut from felt doilies from the dollar store. I am going to make a new garland, too.
