DIY :: Clay Ornaments

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Hi friends!

I’ve got a quick and easy DIY that is perfect if you are struggling for some last minute gifts! This is also an incredibly kid-friendly project so those of you with kids in need of activities (like me) can include them in the fun AND keep them occupied for awhile. Win-win.









Some notes:

You can find air dry clay at most craft stores and you can get as creative as you like with the stamps. The clay is pretty sticky so we rolled it out on waxed paper. My daughter also included glitter and gold stars on some of hers. Cute stuff. Allow the clay to cure for three days before hanging and/or wrapping.

P.S. This is a perfect gift for grandparents/teachers/caregivers. Let the little ones personalize them. (And I hope my mom isn’t reading this because now she knows what she is getting.)

Good luck, friends, and leave us a link in the comments if you have any great holiday DIY projects we should know about!

    Hi Emily!I love your site and I’ve been reading for quite a while, but this is I think the first time I have cotemnmed (which is ironic since I love when I get comments, ha)! I think I found you through the Things I’m Afraid to Tell You (through Creature Comforts) or maybe through searching on Maine? My parents have a house there and I spent summers there as a child, so I’m always looking to read about that! Plus my husband’s family is Irish and we’ve always talked about living in Dublin some day, so your blog is perfect on so many fronts! Anyway, I am calling it you have spotted the latest awesome neon trend the white neon on white!!! The neon itself is super expensive, but I love the general idea so much! I wonder if we could create the same idea with a saying painted super bright white, but hang it on a wall that’s kind of a less white color? Anyway, keep up the good work!
