Hello again lovely readers! I’m back again with another handmade Christmas ornament. This time I decided to break out the air dry clay again. I absolutely love the clay tags and clay cake stand I made recently, so I figured why not an ornament too!

stamps – I used snowflake and alphabet stamps purchased from Michael’s several years ago.
DIY Clay Ornament
This ornament is super quick and simple to make. It would even be a great project to let your kids try.
Roll out a small amount of clay with a rolling pin. Use a cookie cutter to cut out a circle of clay.
Use your stamps and ink to stamp on a design. I used several snowflake stamps and then used alphabet stamps to spell out Let it Snow. But you could use any Christmasy stamps you happen to have.
Use a pen or nail or whatever is handy to poke a small hole for hanging.
Once your clay has fully dried (usually overnight), gently sand the edges of the ornament with a piece of sandpaper to smooth the edges.
String it on a piece of ribbon and hang it on your tree!
