Polymer Clay Gingerbread House Ornament


I thought I would share with you a Christmas ornament I made just 2 days before Christmas.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute to get things done!!!  

I made this out of polymer clay (Fimo and Sculpey).  Polymer clay has always been one of my favorite things to play with.  I actually have three craft mediums I love to play with and they are polymer clay, rubber stamping and beading.  Clay being the cheapest of all of them!!!  Clay is something that I can actually run out of.  The stamps and beads, well that would be unheard of!!! LOL  

When I started this ornament I had a different house in mind.  But I do like how this one turned out.  I had this little jar half full of little clay candies so it was easy to just add them to the door trim. I whipped up a couple of  candy canes and with the snow on the roof and ground I was going to leave it as it was.  But then I realized I didn't have any room for the year so I added the little clay charms (the gingerbread boy and girl and heart).  And that completed the ornament.  I was now proud to give it as a gift!

It was very fun to make and I may make some to sell in my web store but not for a few months.  I need to recover a bit longer from the holidays before I dip into Christmas stuff again!

Thank you for visiting today,
Wanda
