Starfishes are everywhere!
Perhaps you've already seen them on some fashion blogs, and today I'll show you my latest DIY featuring one.
his summer I'm officially declaring that I have a Polymore Clay addiction, I can't stop making things with it! If you haven't try it then you should, you'll be amazed of how many things you could create, and it's as simple as it was playing with clay when you were little.
Polymer Clay in gold (or in any other color and then paint it with gold spray paint), toothpick, strong glue like E6000, yute, embellished ribbons, velcro.
Keep reading for instructions!
Start by drawing (or printing) a starfish shape in the size you want to, then cut some fimo (polymer clay) and start sculpting your starfish, the drawing will give you an idea on how it has to be, (it could be entirely flat or you could make it curvy like I did, check it on the fifth pic). When you have it ready, use your toothpick to make the texture. Take it to the oven for 30 minutes at 225 degrees. Let it cold and paint it with spray paint.
Cut a rectangle of yute, mine was about 10 inches long and 4 inches wide, fold the edges to the center and use glue to adhere them to the middle (first pic), then fold the corners of the sides and glue them too (2nd pic), then on the front start glueing the ribbons, I used red and blue, add the velcro on both sides so you can make a closure for your bracelet.
Now that you have your yute bracelet ready, addd some glue to your starfish and adhere it to the middle of the bracelet, that's it!
Now I'm ready to wear it on my summer vacations!
As always, if you don't feel like making it you could always buy it, here are my favorites:
