DIY: miniature hot beverage pin

EN

Storm and rain blew me away today, leaving me in a cold and wet state. But that’s ok! Because days like today calls for a hot mug of boiling beverage or two. And that’s what I did when I came home. O Fall and Winter, you just keep doing your thing and I’ll keep treating myself with another mug!

And the hot beverage is the inspiration source for today’s DIY post (finally). I am very sorry for the lack of DIY post recently. It is not the ideas I am lacking but time. And a good camera for snapping crisp DIY pictures.
But for now I just use my phone camera which is not too bad and I hope the pictures offers a good image of help.

So I have used Fimo clay for todays DIY but you can of course use polymer clay.
And I have decided to turn the Fimo creations into a brooch, along with the brooch bar pins that Pandahall kindly shipped me some! Thank you very much!

Me and Pandahall are collaborating! Woo! Pandahall is a wholesale online shop selling numerous craft supplies and tools.  

Please try out this DIY! It’s fun and easy and perhaps a nice gift to give away for the upcoming gifting days.

Storm en regen bliezen me opzij en liet me in een bibber en natte stand achter. Maar dat geeft niet! Dagen als vandaag vraagt om een warme beker met een lekker drankje of twee. En dat is wat ik ook deed toen ik thuis kwam. O herfst en winter, doe gewoon je eigen ding en ik doe mijn eigen ding met een warme kop lekkers!

En de warme kop met lekkers is de inspiratiebron voor de DIY post vandaag, eindelijk. Het spijt me zeer voor de geringe DIY post in de laatste tijd. Het zijn niet de ideeën die ontbreken, maar de tijd. En een goede camera voor het maken van scherpe DIY’s foto’s.
Maar tot dan doet mijn mobiel camera niet slecht en ik hoop dat de foto’s toch een beetje kwaliteit bieden.

Voor vandaag heb ik weer voor ‘t eerst Fimo klei gebruikt. En de Fimo creaties veranderde in leuke broches! Hiervoor heb ik de broche plaat pinnetjes gebruik die ik van PandaHall hebt gekregen, heel erg bedankt!
