Discover an amazingly easy way to make delicate filigree-style ornaments. Hang one in a window, wear it as a pendant, or give it as a memorable gift!
Fabric lace and metal filigree (delicate metalwork that looks like lace) have been made by artisans for centuries. Research the origins of both and you’ll discover ancient civilizations. Each art form can create delicate and beautiful works of art from tiny amounts of material.
To create your own lacy ornament or pendant, mix a Ping-Pong ball amount of Crayola Air-Dry Clay with a small amount of water in a plastic sandwich bag. Close the bag and knead until the slurry is about the consistency of thick pudding. With Crayola Scissors, cut a tiny corner off the bag. Squeeze out the clay mix on waxed paper.
Be sure to overlap the strands of clay as you create your ornament. Leave space to thread a ribbon! If you forgot, just put the clay back in the bag and start again. Air-dry the ornament for a day or two.
Cover your art area with newspaper. If you like, paint your lace with Crayola Premier™ Tempera, which also comes in gold and silver for special effects. Air-dry the paint.
Decorate your ornament with Crayola Glitter Glue if you wish. Air-dry the glitter.
Tie on a beautiful ribbon to hang or wear your creation.
