Things you may never have thought of as clay tools can lead to interesting clay motifs. One of these is the simple child's barrette. Barrettes have the advantage of having a ready-made handle (the clip) and often come with highly textured designs.
In this case, the flowers could readily lend themselves to a spring-motif platter or vase, don't you think? Explore your drawers and see what pops out at you!
