After using Thermomorph to make a plant pot last week, I had loads of pellets left so I decided to have a go at making some plastic jewellery. I used a cookie cutter again, this time in the cutest little daisy shape! I’ve attached the plastic flowers to a choker I bought from eBay. Who knew 90s “tattoo” chokers would be cool again? Oh well, I’m not complaining!
Fill a bowl with boiling water, and add a handful of thermomorph pellets. After a minute they’ll become transparent and be ready to use! / Scoop out some thermomorph, roll it flat and cut out a shape with your cookie cutter. / My cookie cutter didn’t go right through the plastic, so I turned it upside down and peeled the plastic away. / To neaten up the edges, dunk your flowers back into the hot water for a minute and use your hands to push the edges back into shape.
Once they’ve cooled, paint your flowers and once they’re dry, coat them with a layer of PVA glue. / Draw around your flowers on the felt and cut the shapes out. / Use the glue gun to glue the flowers to the choker, with the felt backing the other side of the choker.
And that’s it! The choker I bought was a little wide for my neck, so I’d love to have a go with one that sits further up. I’ve never used sculpey clay but I imagine clay might also work for the flowers. You could totally make a range of daisy accessories with this method – daisy hair slides would be the cutest!
