Get patriotic this year with everyone's favorite summer treat!

Freedom pops have always been one of my favorite summer treats. I decided try my hand at making some miniatures of them. As you all know I love to eat my food and wear it too. These were real fun to make and I hope you have fun making some for yourself.

What you need:

Roll out some translucent clay into small cylinders. Condition clay with liquid Fimo or another conditioner if the clay is too hard.

Shape clay by rolling out one of the ends till you have a glass bottle shape.

Trim the top so now you have more of a crayon shape.

Trim eye pins and the ends off of toothpicks. Insert the toothpick at the lager end and the eye pin at the top. You can use a drop of liquid Fimo on both before inserting for a better hold.

To get the popsicle to have its grooves press 4 toothpicks around your work with the tips placed a little under the top of your clay work. Gently remove the toothpicks.

Shave some red chalk pastel and paint on some red chalk to the top third of your popsicle.

Clean your brush and dry it so colors won’t mix. Paint on blue chalk to the bottom third of your popsicle.

Bake for 16 minutes at 260.

The perfect charm for your 4th of July outfit!

Use the charms however you like. I made mine into cute earrings. If you love these but don’t have time to make them yourself you can find them in my Etsy store along with all my other cute creations.
