A few weeks ago, Craftberry Bush did a tutorial on how she made a cute garland out of clay starfish. Super cute.
The other day when I was making my faux coral out of dough, I remembered her tutorial and used up some extra dough to make a couple of starfish.
I took the dough and smushed it into a little disk. I pressed a star-shape into the disk which left me with 5 fairly equal pieces of the dough.
I rolled each of the 5 pieces into little sections, then placed them in a star shape, connecting them at the middle. Smooth your star into, well, um, a star shape… Insert toothpicks or skewers into it if you want to make your starfish a bit more durable. (I am lazy and wasn’t too worried about it.) Take a skewer and poke little holes all over it for texture.
Once they were dry, I took them outside and sprayed them a gloss white, then I took Rustoleum’s Heirloom White and gave a light mist over the top of the white.
When they’re dry, bring them in the house and, um, stick them somewhere….
I have a feeling these will get moved around a lot as I decide where to put them.
But in the meantime, this’ll work.
Hey! Guess what! I am doing 2 different guest posts in 2 different places today!
I am thrilled to be sharing the tutorial for my Pottery Barn Shell Candle Knock Offs at Homebody for Holly’s Knock Off Party
