How to Make Cute Fruit Pendants

If you were looking for a super fun craft that turns out equally super cute…. then I have the craft for you today.  I’m going to show you how to make Cute Fruit Pendants.  These pendants are made from Polymer Clay, so they turn out really durable…. another words, they will last.  Add a little paint and a couple of eye pins and you have the materials needed to do this craft.  Keep in mind that the polymer clay will need to be baked, so you will need an adult for this part.  So, grab the materials needed and let’s get this craft started.

Step-by-step tutorial offered by Laura from Dacian Moon Handmade.


Materials Needed

– toothpick
– polymer clay: blue and yellow – we will make a plum and a lemon
– cutter
– acrylic paints (white, black and red/pink)
– 2 eye-pins
– baking paper
– baking tray


Step 1

Let’s start with the plum. Take the blue clay.

Condition polymer clay by hand, simply mix it and squish it with your fingers. You may want to roll it into a log between your palms, fold it in half, and then roll again.



Step 2

Make a little egg with it by rubbing it gently between your hands.


Step 3

Take one pin…

… and fix it on top of the blue egg.

Press until only the eye stays outside.


Step 4

Because we don’t bake every piece separately, we must do the lemon too. So, take the yellow clay…

… and condition it.


Step 5

Repeat the 2nd and 3rd steps: make a yellow egg…

… and place the pin on top of it.


Step 6

With three fingers squish the head.

Now it looks like a lemon.


Step 7

Place the fruits on the baking tray, and bake them according to the instructions on the polymer clay package (they depend on the brand you use: fimo, cernit, sculpey…, but usually it is one half of hour at 230 F or 110 C) – this part you need a little help from an adult.

Let them cool down.


Step 8

Use the toothpick to paint them. Add two white circles…

… then two black smaller circles to complete the eyes

Draw the mouth – make them smile.

That is the plum.

Now take the lemon…

… and paint it too. Be creative.

You can add red cheeks, for a drop of color.

Now, you can attach them to a chain or a thread or a bracelet… even to a key chain. Either way it will be super cute.  What way did you decide to display your Cute Fruit Pendants?  Let me know in the comments below.  And, take a picture of your fruit pendants and share that in the comment at well… I’d love to see how they turned out.
