I love wrapping presents, and Christmas presents are my absolute favorite to wrap. Each year my Christmas wrapping has a theme, this year I am decorating all the gifts with home- and handmade white clay hearts. I am not the greatest DIY kind of a person, but these hearts are easy and very pretty. A perfect thing to do together with your children.
You can make Christmas ornaments like this in billion ways – This is how I did it:
– I used white hobby clay that dries up at room temp in 2 days, but you can use any kind you prefer. Next time I will be trying clay that goes in the oven.
– For the imprint I used thuja, my favorite Holiday greenery, but you can use regular spruce, pine or even lace to make the pattern.
– I used cookie cutters (hearts and stars) to shape the ornaments, but if you have a steady hand or want something even more rustic you can cut the ornaments out by hand.
– Remember to make a hole in the ornament so you can put a ribbon in it.
