For the garden

Make yourself a merry little Christmas. 24 days of gifts and makes to create a frugal home made Christmas.

Day Nineteen.

Plant pokes



You will need:

Fimo

Small stamps

A knife

Rolling pin

Colours of choice if you want to paint your pokes

Method:

Condition the fimo by kneading it and then roll it out thin. Cut out your preferred plant poke shape. Using a sharp pointed knife carve in words of your choice. If you have alphabet stamps you can also stamp in words on the clay. Using your smaller stamps stamp in a design next to the words (I had a leaf, flower, and butterfly stamps).

Using the directions on your fimo clay, bake in a oven to harden the clay.

Let cool.

You can leave your plant poke unpainted, or paint it lightly as I did in a colour of choice.
