Cute Stork Baby Shower Gift

Stork front

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing a cute stork I made for a friends baby shower! I had a lot of fun building this guy. And it was a lot easier than I figured it would be.

I started by making the mailbox. There is wire sticking out of the bottom, so I could secure it to the base. Then I made the legs with wire sticking out of both ends. After they were baked, I shaped the torso and attached it to the legs. It was a bit tricky to get the wings to hold the baby while baking, but a little bit of paper towel and a handy mug made it secure while curing!

I used a little paint on the base, then gave it a coat of varnish, and viola! One special delivery for a very special lady!

And here is the back view! I’m fairly new to recording my every step while making things, so please forgive the lack of images and pleasing backdrop. LOL

Thanks for stopping by, and have a splendiferous day!

Welcome to today’s Wordless Wednesday!  These photos are of a mushroom WIP I’m making out of polymer clay!  Jebediah is about 1 1/4 inches high.  I will be putting him in a scene that will go on Etsy!  Woo hoo!  I’m still working on him, but I hope to have him finished by next week!  I’d love to hear ideas for the scene!  I was thinking a little creature of some kind.  Maybe a snail?

 

See you next week!  Love and Light!

Now I can FINALLY use up some of the old Mason jars my sister gave me when she moved!  Quart jar crafts are becoming so popular these days.  Back in the 90s, my Mom made several votive candles out of jars.  She painted scenes and flowers on them.  I still have mine displayed in a prominent spot!  She was really ahead of her time, huh?  LOL  Have you made any of them?  Feel free to leave a link to your jar project in the comments!
