A cigarette holder worthy of an old-time movie queen can be made from polymer clay. The secret to the strength of the cigarette holder's base is a bamboo chopstick, which will allow the polymer clay to act as a decorative material suitable for jewelled embellishments. This cigarette holder could be a great prop for a Halloween costume or a glamorous accessory for a teenage fantasy dress-up party that incorporates making the holders in a craft session.
