Hello and welcome, crafty friends! Today, I’m joining all the lovely ladies of the Canadian Christmas Craft Blog Hop where we are showcasing our best holiday craft ideas. (You’ll see links to all 20 ideas at the bottom of the post).  For my part, I’ll be showing you how to make Air Dry Clay Christmas Ornaments 5 Different Ways.  Using air dry clay is quick and easy and is the perfect craft to do with the kiddos.

Okay, let’s get started!

here. ~

Basic Supplies Needed to Make Air Dry Clay Christmas Ornaments

  • air dry clay (I used FIMO in white)
  • wax (or parchment) paper + tape
  • rolling pin
  • cookie cutters
  • basic drinking straw
  • small jar filled with water
  • ribbon of choice (I used natural jute twine like this one or this one)

The following supplies are used in some of the ‘fancy’ designs that I’ll be showing you below and are, therefore, totally optional. These include:

  • a clay embossing set (I used this Walnut Hollow set)
  • gold glitter of your choice
  • small piece of greenery (real or synthetic)
  • brush & watercolours of choice
  • sand paper

Design #1:  Basic Star Shapes  

First, lay your wax paper on a surface and tape it down. This will prevent it from shifting around. The wax paper is a good choice so that the clay does not stick to the surface. Fill a small jar of water and keep it handy.
