A turtle shell covered in jewels sounds pretty magical. After hearing a story about such a fancy turtle we decided to make our own sparkling turtle.

How We Did It

Jeweled Turtle

We used a basic salt dough for this, but you can use any air drying clay, too.

We started by sculpting the foil into a shell shape.

Next, we added rolls of the dough to the bottom of the shell so they would stick out like feet, head and a tail.

Now for the fun! Sequins and tacky glue finished this turtle off.

How cute is our little turtle? It would be fun to make a whole family of these little guys.
