We made clay green men to welcome (finally) the arrival of spring/May (belatedly). Green men are a traditional symbol of spring representing rebirth and new life, although I think they look slightly scary! We made ours from air drying clay. We made a flattened circle and pinched out the face parts. To this we added ivy leaves we had cut out using an icing cutter. Care was taken to ensure no parts got too thin (they would just snap) and to join the leaves on carefully.
