The Cutest Polymer Clay House Mobile


Inside: The polymer clay house tutorial that doubles as a cute DIY fairy house.

We are full swing in baby shower season this month. Many of our dear friends are expecting and I have been making the clay house mobiles for them all. They are way easier to make then you would think, and the mobiles give a gorgeous presentation for bedside or nursery.the clay housepolymer clay house tutorial

The polymer clay house tutorial

To make the clay houses use Sculpey polymer craft clay. Cut the clay at the perforated lines to form the basic house rectangles. The rectangles can be used as sky scrappers or use an x-acto knife on the rectangle angles to form the house roofs.

A drill bit gently pressed into the clay makes for great windows and the doors you can also carve them out by lifting the clay gently with the x-acto knife.

Bake the clay houses according to the package directions with a length of embroidery string run through the center of each house (the string will not burn while baking). Once the house has baked and cooled, then attach to a mobile structure for hanging. Make the houses in batches for simple handmade presents – a thoughtful gift for all the showers you will attend this spring.

    what did you tie the tops of the stings on to? and how do you recommend hanging it from the ceiling?
