I am kicking off ten days of Halloween with these totally adorable Sculpey clay Halloween pins. They are so fun to make and work great to add to a little card to send to a friend. Of course, you might fall in love with your creations (like I did that tall pumpkin one) and decide to keep them and add them to your favorite autumn jacket. This project is great for kids and adults. Because it is fairly simple and doesn’t require too many colors, it is perfect for a party craft or a Girl Scout meeting. This post is sponsored by Sculpey but the ideas and opinions are my own. I used Sculpey III clay for these pins but this would work great with Sculpey Bake Shop too.
To make these pins, you will need the following supplies:
- Sculpey III Clay (Orange, Black, White, Brown and Green)
- Oven for Baking
- Clay Tools for Shaping and Texture (If Desired)
- Pin Backs
- Adhesive (I used Liquid Fusion)
The first step is to prep your clay and get it soft. Rolling into balls with the desired amount for your pin works great. These pins each are approximately half a bar. There are four bars in a package.
Once the clay is soft, form your design with your fingers and press flat. Add details with the other colors.
Bake the masterpieces following the direction in the packaging or from the Sculpey site.
Let them cool then glue pin backs to each one. Allow plenty of dry time before wearing or sending the pins.
Here is a free printable of a card that you can use with your pins. It prints two to a regular piece of card stock. Cut in half and fold and you are ready to add your pin.
Cheers to Halloween and all of the fun crafting that goes with it.
