I simply love "Plants vs Zombies" and I also love to decorate my (real) plants because I find it so cozy to look at.
The "Flower friends" can also be used as flower decoration for gifts.

Step 1: What you need:

Picture of What you need:
The materials needed are straight forward, and I just used what I had laying around in my house.
I guess it would be best to use polymer clay, but I only had regular soft clay, so that is what I used, and used nail polish as varnish.

- Clay 
- Glue
- Nail polish (gloss varnish)
- Toothpicks
- Tools for sculpting (I only used a cutting knife and the toothpicks)

Step 2: Cut out the forms

Flatten the clay and cut out the shapes (for difficult shapes you can draw an outline with a toothpick/cutting knife).
Use your fingers to shape the finish and round edges.

Step 3: Put the forms together

Press the different clay shapes together to create the figure.

Step 4: Stop motion!

Check out my stop motion video to see how I did it :)

Step 5: Toothpick-stand

Glue a toothpick on the backside. The toothpick will stabilise the clay, but now we also have our character on a stick - ready as flower decoration that can be stuck in the soil!

Step 6: Varnish

I used nail polish as varnish, and it worked ok. Remember to brush a lot of varnish on the areas where different clay shapes are put together to be sure that they will remain that way :)

Step 7: You are done!

Let the varnish dry and you are done!
Hope you enjoyed it and that you have made some AWESOME flower decorations.
I love Plants VS Zombies too, I would probably make a Wall Nut because I love their faces.
