Very little (but quite happy) moon shrines


I finished this series of tiny moon shrines yesterday. I created the moony faces a while ago but have been lacking the gumption to complete their starry skies. I'm blaming the wintry weather that seems to be dragging it's heels and preventing springs return for my laziness.

Here they are now, happy as clams in their new tiny homes. They are small, the square ones measuring just 3", but tiny places are important so we won't  hold that against them.

The moons are created with polymer clay, the houses and toadstools are paperclay.

I've used two different types of glitter too. Above is lovey long strands, which remind me of Van Gogh's starry night. Below, a more traditional variety of fine glitter that are like pinpoints of light in the sky.

I'm not pleased with the photos. My camera doesn't seem to know what I want. It refuses to see what I see. It's frustrating. The little shrines are far nicer in person. The moons don't care, they are just happy to have their skies to hang in.

All of the wee things above are available in my etsy shop HERE.

  1. I watched your tutorial to make the little moon faces. Seriously, you make some of the cutest stuff! I really think these are so cute. These would be fun with the little twinkle lights, maybe. I love these!
