DIY Paperclay Jewelry Bust

January 8, 2013

Kicking off 2013 with exciting news! I’ve recently joined the Whimseybox team as a DIY contributor and couldn’t be more stoked! Whimseybox is a monthly subscription service that sends you boxes of crafty projects to make each month! I started getting their boxes last Fall and have been hooked. If you like to make with your hands, but hate the hassle of coming up with the idea and the supplies, then Whimseybox is totally for you.

My first project is being shared today so hop on over to check it out! I love the look of fancy jewelry busts, but some are either too ugly, or too expensive. Why not make your own with some paperclay, cardboard, and spray paint? This project is one of my faves and that bust looks so great on my dresser holding my big statement necklaces. Check out the full tutorial here!
