DIY "Brass" Urchin

These brass urchins seem to be everywhere, and have been for a while.  I love them. I think I could find a place for one of these in every nook and cranny of our home. When I found a blog, Craft and Couture, with a tutorial on how to make one, I was all in. This is so easy and fun to make!

Please reference Craft and Couture's post for detailed instructions! Gather your supplies..

Mold your clay/sticks, and bake…

Allow time to cool, and spray away!

This project is simple and inexpensive.  A perfect snow day craft!

I have enough supplies left over, so I think I will make another one for our master bedroom. I don't think I will ever time of brass/gold. Are you over it, or still on board?!

I also picked up my first orchid at Trader Joe's a few weeks ago. I have a pretty green thumb, but orchids scare me! Any tips I need to know about?

  7. Wow! As a lover of all things nautical, this definitely caught my eye. It looks so high-end...I would never guess that it's made of clay and sticks. Way to go! Pinning it!
