Okay, so remember those cute little hamantashen wine charms I made a few weeks ago? Today’s project is actually the original reason that I bought the polymer clay. As I said, I had a bunch leftover, so I improvised a quick Purim craft. As my mom would say, “A+ for use of leftovers!”
I’ve wanted to make some sort of hamsa art for my home for a while, but I didn’t really know what I wanted it to look like or what art medium I would use. All I knew was that I wanted to have a symbol of good fortune in my home, especially after all the craziness of the last couple of years.
And then these terrazzo-inspired polymer clay projects kept popping up on my Pinterest feed. All that was left to do was to figure out what colors I wanted, which is silly because my house is pretty much turquoise central. So, after deciding that I wanted my new wall hanging to reside in my living room, it became pretty clear that I would be using gold, dark green, and turquoise with white as a base.
Making the charm is as easy as downloading my template, rolling the clay, cutting, and baking. All in all, it only took about 30-45 minutes to create a beautiful new piece of home décor.
