Modern Clay and Gold Ornaments

After sharing all the fun ornaments from other crafters yesterday, here is the big reveal of my own festive DIY project. 

Inspiration : Houses by Creature Comforts, Copper Mountains by A Living Space, Mini Baubles by Joheckett, and Gold-Topped Mushrooms from Pinterest credited to Frédéric Lucano

Supplies Note: I decided to use suede cording instead of the gold twine and also nixed the spray paint and paint pens in lieu of the gold foil liquid paint in the little jar. It is by far the best gold hue and coverage.

Pre-baking : I found the bird cookie cutter on Amazon

To ensure my ornaments arrived intact I attached them to a sheet of corrugated cardboard and then put a layer of bubble wrap on top of it as well. The survival rate was 90%, we lost one to the Chicago mail system, but I think it can be revived with a little super glue.

The finished product:
