Christmas decorations made from clay

I love using left over clay to make Christmas decorations.

If you want to make these follow the steps below:

  1. Roll clay slab
  2. Using cookie cutters press into the clay to create your shapes
  3. Make holes in the decorations using a fat needle (i.e. you will later use to thread your string through)
  4. Let dry (you may need to put a tile or something on the top of your shapes and rotate so they do not go out of shape and dry evenly)
  5. Fire your decorations
  6. For the decorations below I then painted in acrylic paint and sprayed with a sealant (alternatively, you could glaze the decorations and then fire again)
  7. Thread through your ribbons/string etc along with anything else that takes your fancy.
