I have been seeing these gold sea urchins all over and I just love them. I looked for a good tutorial and found one over at Craft and Couture.
I started out with clay that you could bake (from Michaels), gold spray paint and BBQ skewers (because I had then on hand). I liked the pointy end of the skewer so I just cut them to size.
1) I cut the clay in half 2) then rolled it into a ball.
It adds so much interest to my book shelf. I really like how this little guy turned out.
And since I had extra clay my 4 year old daughter wanted in on the action. I just love hers! She was so proud. It has a perfect spot on the book shelf too. I think she wanted it in her room but I knew it would just get lost in there so I am glad she let me display it.
Halloween is tomorrow, are you ready? It is always a fun day, the kids have so much fun! I remember those days. Have a great Halloween everyone!
