Make Your Own Snail Needle Toppers - Free Instructions

Make two rolls with oven bake for each snail. I suggest making both pieces at the same time so the toppers are the same size.

Roll the larger piece to make the shell.

Flatten the smaller piece to prepare for blending into the shell.

Blend the two pieces togther on the underside.

Place glass bead eyes on the snail with a toothpick.

Push the snail onto the needle/dowel to make a hole. Be careful not to push too hard and ruin the snail.

I also put a smile on the snail with a toothpick. You could also put more beads into the shell for decoration. Then bake the clay according to the manufacturer's instructions. Then you glue them on after cooling. Voila! Escargot for your knitting needles.
