Hello, everyone! It’s Aga here, and we're doing something a little more unique today.

I love adding a personal touch to the holidays! So, today I would like to share with you a really simple idea for handmade ornaments made from air dry clay.

How to Create Simple Air Dry Clay Ornaments with Pen Sketched Silhouette Stamp Set

I started off with my white air dry clay from a local craft shop. I rolled out a piece of clay to a desirable thickness using a rolling pin. Next, I used a cookie cutter to cut out round shapes and gently smoothed the edges with my fingers.

I let them dry for about 10 minutes and then I used a stamp from Pen Sketched Silhouette Stamp Set along with Desert Night Crisp Dye Ink to decorate my ornaments.

Before I started my project, I tried different colours of inks and some of them faded away or changed after drying, so it’s good to check how they react with a specific type of clay.

After stamping my leaves, I made a hole in the top of each ornament and left them for 24 hours to dry. Once they were dry I added a piece of paper string for a hanger.

You can use these little ornaments to decorate a Christmas tree and hang them on a branch in a vase. They can also make the perfect tag for presents, or be a handmade gift itself!

Aga, I have come back to tell you I tried your ornaments – though I used the darkest grey in the quad, it faded just as you predicted it might! My clay did not dry as white as yours seem to be either. Oh well, it was fun to try! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you Michele for your feedback! Yes, clays are different and therefore they will respond differently. Mine is white and I’m still not very happy with its brightness, lol! You can try to colour it with different mediums after it’s dry, too!
