I’ve decided to pop in to quickly and share with you the easy DIY clay ornaments I made with my daughters over Thanksgiving weekend. These air-dried DIY clay ornaments were so simple to make! We loved how pretty they turned out. In fact, I love them so much I am going to host some friends next week for a craft and wine party!
Air Dry clay is the perfect medium for beginning crafters. It is lightweight and dries without heat (which is why these Christmas Ornaments are so easy to make). It is very easy to manipulate and doesn’t crumble or shrink.
Air Hardening Modeling Clay One package made 10 ornaments.
GLASS OR SMALL JAR
To craft your ornaments start by rolling out the clay on the cutting board (about 1/8 in thick).
Use the jar to cut out your circles.
Using the end of one of the paintbrushes make a holes for hanging.
Using the stamps personalize your Christmas Ornaments. To do this place your stamp where you’d like it and press gently.
Embellish with paint (If you’d like).
Let air dry for 36-48 hours -I flipped mine after 12 hours and it helped them dry faster.
Add ribbon, leather or twine for hanging.
I told you it was quick and easy! Here are a few more.
Try painting stripes…
Or an all over wash of color.
The homemade feel to these ornaments adds to the charm.
The clay is so easy to shape you could also try:
I ordered all of the products I used for the DIY Clay Ornaments from Amazon. You can find the links below:
That’s it. I said these are easy. If you decide to give it a try, let me know how it goes. 🙂
Until next time,
