DIY Clay Ornaments

These clay ornaments are a nice personal touch to any gift. They can be used as name tags on presents or even on the dinner table. Follow the instructions below to make your own.

What you will need:

  • Sculpey Clay (see picture below)
  • Baking sheet
  • A circle cookie cutter (I used a glass)
  • A leaf or spray of your Christmas tree 

Roll out some clay to about an 1/4" thickness and then use a glass or cookie cutter to make a circle 

I like to make many ornaments at once because you have to bake them all.

Press a shape into your ornament. I used a piece of my neighbor's tree, but you can use anything 

Roll the glass over the clay to make sure your shape is visible

Bake according to the kind of clay you bought. I baked these for 15 minutes at 275 degrees.

Paint and decorate as you wish. Enjoy!
