How freaking adorable are these little smores?! And you guys, it is SO EASY to create, seriously!
It’s camping season around here so when we decided to get creative recently, these smores came to mind! We love smores as showcased in this smores cookie recipe, this Smore’s tshirt tutorial and these cinnamon bun smores.My friend Laura, at Me and My Inklings, has the cutest line of Kindness lunch notes, postcards and even a book that would make the best addition to this craft and the perfect gift! Her little smore doodle inspired our design.
How darling is this simple project?! This easy craft is a great way to get creative and crafty!

Supplies that you will need:
- rolling pin
- parchment paper
- white polymer clay
- tan polymer clay
- brown polymer clay
- cutting and piercing tool
- black sharpie fine tip marker
- Roll the white clay into balls about 3/4″ thick. Press into a cylinder, marshmallow shape.
2. Roll the tan clay to about 1/4″ thick. Cut into 1/2″ squares and mark with four round indents to create graham crackers.
3. Form a 1/4″ ball of brown clay into melted chocolate. Roll the clay 1/8″ flat and use the shaping tool to mold the clay.
4. Layer the brown clay on the top of a marshmallow, making it look like its dripping down the sides.
5. Place a tan square on the top and bottom of the marshmallow.
6. Use a piercing tool to poke a hole through the center of the clay smore.
7. Bake the clay as directed in the oven. For me this was 20 minutes at 200 degrees.
8. Once the clay has cooled, sketch a little face onto it using a fine tipped sharpie. Thread a loop of twine through the hole in the center and you are done!
Didn’t these smores turn out darling?!

Polymer clay crafting tips:
- Work with a high quality product like sculpey clay.
- Use plastic wrap in an air tight container to store clay.
- Score where you want two pieces of clay to stick together.
- Shape cutters work best on a flat, solid work surface.
- A craft oven is not needed.
- Bake at low temperatures to allow the clay to set slowly and prevent cracking.
