With A Little Clay

 adding some Christmas

an old piece of wood

 A friend of mine's husband (Sonny) gave me this very old piece of wood.  I used a vintage spoon for the stem and a old piece of embossed metal for the flower and the leaves.  The metal was already this color.
I covered the candle with air dry clay and matched the paint on the metal.  Thanks Sonny.


 I friend Betty Rae give me these graders a while back.
 I decided to make these.  I painted the silverware with nail polish.  Fun to make.

Little Pots

A fun project-thanks for sharing Robin
