Phoenix – bird for luck


Craft supplies

Air dry clay – we used orange and green

Pair of wiggle eyes

Feathers – small for the “crown” and big for wings and tail

Optional: pearl or acrylic beads for necklace


Form two “sausages” of clay, put together, twist (do not mix it too long to keep beautiful patterns)

Form an egg, then pull one side, curve (neck), mold the head, pinch back the beak

Press in eyes

Stick the feathers in to head, to the sides, to the tail zone

Optional: press the beads into her neck to make her necklaced 🙂

Let the clay dry and it’s ready to display or gift!
