Tips For Creating This Easy Clay Craft
- Grab a pack of brightly colored polymer clay. You can always color your own clay, of course, but it’s a bigger hassle than it’s worth when you’re just making something that is a standard color, like fruit. LOL!
- Let the kids join in and make their own as gifts for friends! Have the kids be as creative as they want! Do they want a pink lemon? Go for it! Want to add a frowny face to their apple? For sure!
- Be patient as these firm up so that they last and don’t crack or break. If you rush the process, you might have to start all over. So, let them cool completely before smooshing them, is what I’m saying.
- If you want to seal these so that they won’t get stained, I highly recommend giving them a coat of Mod Podge when they’re cooled. That is going to really seal in those colors and make your adorable fruit charms pop!

- Make the clay a ball shape for each fruit you're going to make.
- To make the grapes: Make a 2cm cylinder shape. Make about 20 or so 1-cm purple balls and one green 1-cm ball. Push the purple balls all over the cylinder and put the green ball flat and shape into leaves. Attach to the edges. Make 2 dents with the stylus for the eyes.

- To make the lemon: Make a 2cm yellow ball into a cylinder and have it tapered a bit at the very end. Make a 1/2-cm green ball and shape it like a leaf and put it on the top. Make two dents for the eyes.
- To make a kiwi: Make a 2-cm green ball and then flatten it into the shape of a "u". Make 1/2 cm dark green ball and have it be like a thin rope. Make a 1/2 cm brown ball and make a rope as you did the green one. Make a 1/2 cm white ball and make it into a flat half-circle. Take the green rope and put it around the white circle. Put the green "u" around that and then finish with putting the brown rope wrapped around that. Add indents for eyes.
- To make an orange: make a 2cm orange ball. Add dots all over using the tool. Make 1/4 cm green ball and shape like a leaf - put on the top. Add indents for eyes.
- To make a pear: Make a 2cm green ball and shape it like a pear. Make 1/2 cm green ball and have it look like a leaf - put it on the top. Add indents for eyes.
- To make a blueberry: Make 1/2 cm blue ball and also six 1/4 cm blue balls. Make them into a triangle shape and put them on the top. Add indents for eyes.
- To make a watermelon: Make a 2 cm red ball and shape it like a triangle. Make a 1/2 cm green ball and then light green balls into ropes. Put them on the bottom of the clay piece that looks like a triangle. Add indents for eyes.
- To make cherries: Make 1 cm red circles. Make 2 green balls that are 1/4 cm in size and turn them into ropes. Make another 1/4 cm ball into a leaf shape. Put on the leaf and stems to the top of the red ball. Add indents for eyes.
- For each of the fruit, make 2 little black balls for the eyes.
- Bake the clay fruit as directed per the package instructions.
- Once the clay is cooled, use the sharpie and draw a smile.
- Put some glue on the black balls and press them into the indents you created. Paint a little dot of white paint onto each of the eyes to make them look like they have a shine.
- Optionally, you can then coat each piece of clay fruit with modge podge.
