Christmas Crafts – Clay Ornaments

by cottontailsandcupcakes

I’ve never made anything with clay in my life but then I came across Premo! Oven bake clay. It should have the line ‘playdough for adults’ somewhere on the packaging.

I used it like cookie dough, rolled it out into a sheet and cut out circles. I then used rubber stamps to decorate each round. Then finished by piercing a hole through the top. Baked for 30 minutes at 130 Degrees Celsius. It comes out of the oven still a bit rubbery but cools into a more ceramic texture.

I used modpodge to finish and get a nice shine to the decorations, then threaded through butchers twine.

They look a little..um..rustic but not bad for a first attempt.
