DIY: Miniature Pine Tree


Pine trees in December means a rich ornamented tree with literally bells and whistles on it. Therefore I could not miss out an inspired DIY for this happening: a miniature pine tree!

And it’s pretty simple! All you need is a toothpick and a scissor. Whaaa, scissor and clay?! Yep! I’ve learned this technique from a Japanese craftbook and it really amazed me how easy and fun result it gives.

Curious? Please scroll down and have a go with this DIY!     

Naaldbomen. Je voelt hem al aankomen in December: kerstbomen natuurlijk! Eentje die rijkelijk en letterlijk gevuld is met toeters en bellen. Ik kon deze natuurlijk niet ontgaan en hiervoor een DIY voor jullie bedacht: miniatuur naaldboompje! Klinkt cute no?

En hij is vrij simpel. Je hebt een tandenstoker en een schaar nodig. Klinkt misschien onlogisch een schaar zetten in je klei, maar deze techniek die ik overigens uit een Japans knutselboekje afgekeken heb, geeft leuke resultaten! 

Nieuwsgierig? Kijk snel hieronder en probeer deze DIY gerust uit!  

 You need:  any desired Fimo/Polymer clay, tootpicks, scissor and an oven.

*Snip snip snip*  Once everything is trimmed, bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 110°C to harden it.
