Step 2: Knead or roll out a small amount of white and yellow clay. Cut tiny stars and a moon from white and yellow clay. Place them on the blue clay piece. Bend the clay to match the curve of the barrette.

Step 3: With an adult's help, bake the clay according to package directions. After the clay piece has cooled, glue it to the back of the barrette.
