Homemade clay Christmas decorations

30 Nov

Last year I made these snowflake decorations from air drying clay – this easy to use material was a revelation to me, so I wanted to share another lovely idea with you.

You can buy DAS air drying clay in art shops or from Amazon. To make these tree decorations you could simply roll out small sausages of clay, lay on a strip of cotton lace trim and go over with a rolling pin to impress the pattern. Make a hole in the top with a darning needle and then lay out to dry.

I’d love to know if you try them…

    Oh, actually quite tempted by these, very pretty! And the clay isn’t expensive at all.

    Tres cute! I lilke the lace idea. Chez Larsson has some nifty ideas too: http://chezlarsson.com/myblog/2012/11/mr-mrs-clay.html. I was inspired and bought a stamping alphabet set and stamped names and messages on them for Christmas presents or tags for presents

    Gorgeous! I made some hearts with a lace imprint yesterday actually which I’m hoping to turn into a garland of sorts.

    I think your source for the image might be Dilly Pad on Etsy – see this link: http://www.thefancy.com/things/275401391/Set-of-Four-Lace-Icicle-Ornaments-by-DillyPad-on-Etsy
