Materials:

  • Premo Sculpey Oven-Bake Clay
  • Sculpey tools
  • Sizzix Flip-its Dies
  • Hot glue (optional)

 

Instructions:

  1. Combine white and blue clay, in varying batches to achieve a light to dark color gradation. Make as many color gradations as you have numbers in your house number.
     
  2. Roll out your first color, large enough to fit in the Sizzix Flip-it die or a cookie cutter. Press into clay and cut out shape.
     
  3. Write house numbers in reverse on card stock using hot glue. Let dry; then press into clay. Or, create numbers freehand using the Sculpey tools. Cut out a hole large enough for a bolt or ribbon to pass through. Add additional designs if desired.
     
  4. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 with the remaining clay colors and house numbers.
     
  5. Bake at 275 degrees for 30 minutes in a glass baking dish.
     
  6. When cool, secure your clay house numbers to holes in the front of the mailbox. Or string ribbon through the numbers at increasing lengths so numbers can be hung vertically from a single knob on the door.
