Cute Little Clay Pumpkins

We created tiny little pumpkins!  I can imagine them in a little pumpkin patch....especially on this brown table.  Maybe we'll add some green leaves and vines later!!! They were a lot of fun to make and they will add to our Fall decorations to display each year!  For our pumpkins we used Sculpey Clay,  which you can bake in your oven.  You could use any type of clay you want!   Be sure to hollow out the bottom of the larger pumpkins or they will not bake well.


To create the pumpkins we formed a ball with a little stem to start.


Then we used a pencil to add the lines in the pumpkin.


Then Cassie kept making more and more.... and more!!!!  She really enjoyed making them!  Then it was time to bake them! For Sculpey,  you bake them for about 20 minutes at 275 degrees and longer for the larger ones.


Now it was ready to paint them!  C enjoyed painting them even more than making the pumpkins!  First we painted all the orange parts.


Then we painted the green stems!


Here they are drying!  Pretty Darn Cute!


Finished Cute Little Clay Pumpkins!


Aren't they such a cute Fall Decoration???

What sorts of things have you made with clay lately?
