Fancy Frugal Life: Stamped Clay Ornaments

Stamped Clay Ornaments



Every year I try to find a craft booth to buy a great personalized clay ornament. I think they are such a neat way to remember the holiday.






This year my kids and I made some simple ones for gifts.






I was inspired by this fantastic clay ornament off Pinterest from Pine Feather.








I know there is a ton of clay options out there, but I just used this bucket of Air Dry Clay by Crayola. Making these was super fun..just like playing with Play-Dough!

I rolled some dough out on wax paper and used cookie cutters for the shapes. Then I used a straw for the hole at the top, and regular rubber stamps for personalizing. (I found a set of letters for around $5 with coupon at Joanne's.) Also Michael's had a whole bin of $1 holiday stamps. Notice how I used that snowflake ornament as an imprint!
After they air dried, I spray painted both sides of mine. The last thing I did was add ribbon and a bell to some of them, and raffia to others.


This cute group are for my brother and his new bride. They got married a few months ago so I thought these would be great for their first married Christmas!...Notice their wedding date on one?....Cute!







We made some for the kids' teachers too!

My fav is the angel for Ms. D...cause she is one! :) 18 full day kindergartners by herself!






They are BEYOND excited to give these to their teachers.












This one is on my burlap and white tree :)


So to be very honest this was definitely a messy project (especially with the kids), but so worth it.....We had a blast!






Happy Holidays!

Those are really cute ornaments! I'm going to follow your lead but use homemade salt dough as craft stores are in short supply here in Malaysia.
