These bright peacocks are so beautiful, and so simple to make!

How We Did It

Clay and Bead Peacock
It's always so great when a project needs just a few around-the-house ingredients!
Clay and Bead Peacock

The first step belongs to the biggest person! I cut a few pieces of wire around seven inches or so, then took the needle-nose pliers and curled the end around. This serves two purposes: it rounds the edge so there are no pokey edges, and is a stopper for the beads.

Maddie molded the peacock's body, using blue non-hardening clay. I asked her if she'd like plain air dry clay, and told her she could paint and add glitter-glue to it after it was dry, but she liked the blue clay.

When she had her bird's body just right, she started on the glorious feathers, putting beads on the wire.

I showed her how the first bead would actually be the top of the peacock's feather.

Until she was satisfied with her gorgeously fine fellow!
