DIY Fall Ornaments

Hexagons made of air-drying modeling clay are the base for these tags. Various animals romp and roam - they are simply stamped on the tags. In order to highlight them, the bottom corners feature a metallic shimmer. On the left and on the right side, the tags are framed by a decorative border made with tesa® Deco Tape.
