Polymer and Glass Christmas Bulbs

I took a couple of  the glass Christmas bulbs that we blew that had small holes in the side (one an accident; the other on purpose) and turned them into a bee hive and a bird’s nest using polymer clay.  For one I made a small bee emerging from the hole and the other I made a small blue bird peeking out.  I backed the polymer on the glass bulbs at 275* for 15 minutes.  I used aluminum foil (as seen in pics below) to hold the bulbs in place while they baked.

What a creative idea! As a bird lover, I especially like the blue bird ornament. Excellent!
