Bird gets new beak. Tweet on!

Same bird, but a new look! A new beak molded from polymer clay and then baked in my kitchen oven for about 30 minutes.

The idea originally came to me from a knitting store in Sitka, Alaska, Knitting With Class. Laura Ramp has been creating clay carrot noses for her Woolly Snowmen. How fun is that! My adaptation is the clay beak for any of the Woolly Birds. What I love is that you can control the beak's size so much easier than a knitted beak. Plus the clay beak doesn't lose its shape from year-to-year.

Want to make your own clay beak? Below is my first-ever YouTube video showing you how to do just that. Tweet on!
