Christmas Ornament Workshop for November

 Dorothy had faces of Santas and Elves already made for us using  molds she made from antique ornaments.  She baked the Fimo clay faces in the oven and painted them with sharpies after dipping in flesh colored acrylic.

Below are the finished products our members made - Santas and Elves:  We used painted pine cones, metallic paper, chenille and regular pipe cleaners, miniature trees, bells, etc., all applied with hot glue.
