Getting ready for July 4th

With the July 4th holiday fast approaching, I decided to make my very own decorations for my home. As you know I love making seasonal ornaments. Polymer clay is such a versatile medium to work with and doesn't require any special equipment to bake the clay. I just pop them in the oven, then paint and maybe add some embellishments then glaze.
