for the Bear
Form the bear body from a 1½”
ball of clay and add teardrop pieces for the limbs. Make a bear head
from a 1” ball of clay, adding a small ball for the muzzle and smaller
flattened balls for the ears. Use the skewer end to impress the ears and
make a depression for the mouth.
Press two black seed beads into the bear
head for eyes and one for the nose.
Cut the bamboo skewer to an appropriate
length and insert it into the bear body. Attach the bear head onto the
skewer and apply a little white glue to the joint.
While the clay is still moist, sprinkle on
the cinnamon powder.
Once the bear is dry, glue on the hat, candy
cane, and a small wreath (made from the garland). If desired, apply some
scented oil to the bottom of the bear.
for the Wreath
Form a 2½”
doughnut from the clay. Dust the wreath with cinnamon powder.
After the clay is dry, glue on the garland
and bells with the FabriTac. Tie on the ribbon to make a bow at the top
of the wreath.
For more aroma, apply scented oil to the
back of the wreath.
