Polymer Clay Pumpkin Magnets

By:

These Polymer Clay Pumpkin Magnets from Becky Meverden are a great way to get in the mood for Halloween. They make festive accents for your refrigerator or other metal surfaces. The purple polka dots add a pop of color to these sweet pumpkins. Best of all, unlike some other Halloween crafts, they're not even a tiny bit creepy. Your little goblins can help you put together these polymer clay crafts. You can turn these precious pumpkins into jewelry charms as well.

  1. Flatten a 1" orange ball into a 1 5/8" circle. Use your fingers to flatten the ball, but keep the center thicker than the edges.
     
  2. Use a toothpick to indent lines on the pumpkin.
     
  3. For the stem, roll a 5/16" brown ball into a 1/4" long tapered log. Use a toothpick to indent lines on the stem. Press the stem onto the back of the pumpkin.
     
  4. For the eyes, flatten 2 3/16" white balls into teardrops. Press onto pumpkin. For the pupils, flatten 2 3/32" black balls and press them onto the eyes. Use a toothpick to make two squint lines by each eye.

  6. For the nose, roll a 1/4" orange ball into an oval and press onto the pumpkin.
     
  7. For the mouth, press the lower half of a round cutter into the pumpkin. You can also use the lid of a tub margarine container. Cut a 1" x 2" strip and use your fingers to curve one end of the clay. Press into the pumpkin. Use a toothpick to place a hole on both sides of the mouth.
     
  8. For the polka dots, roll 1/8" magenta (or whatever color you choose) balls. Press randomly all over pumpkin.
