How to Make

  1. Roll out a piece of white clay to around 1cm thick. Cut out a cloud shape, using the picture as a guide. Make eyes and a mouth from pieces of black clay, then take two small balls of pink clay and flatten them onto the cloud for rosy cheeks.
  2. Cut several lengths of blue wool. Roll out a piece of blue clay to around ½ cm thick and cut out rain drop shapes. Sandwich pairs of raindrops over the lengths of wool, as shown, spacing them equally along each length. Ensure you have a raindrop at the very bottom of each piece of wool, hiding the end.
  3. Add a loop of ribbon or wool to the reverse of the cloud so it can be hung from a wall or window.
