Simple Clay Ornaments from Get Your Crap Together on SewWoodsy.comHello Sew Woodsy Readers!  I’m Chelsea and I blog over at Get Your Crap Together.  I am so excited to be here today as part of Sew Woodsy’s 12 Days of Handmade Ornaments!  My husband and I have a tradition of giving our children pajamas and an ornament each year when we decorate our Christmas Tree.  This little Simple Clay Ornament tutorial is a great choice for this year.  It is so simple, you can do them with your little ones and create your own memories.

Supplies Needed:

  • Baking Clay
  • Plastic Ring or Cookie Cutter
  • Pencil
  • Ribbon
  • Foil
  • Baking Sheet

Simple Clay Ornaments from Get Your Crap Together on SewWoodsy.com I used a piece of plastic and wrapped it to make a ring.  If you don’t have one of these, you’ll need a large circular cookie cutter.

Take the baking clay and knead it.  Place clay into the plastic ring or cookie cutter.  Press clay until it forms a circle.

My son got in on the fun.  I gave him a pencil and her made his own designs.  Mostly snowflakes.  But he enjoyed it.

Make sure to punch a hole for the ribbon for hanging.  And make sure that it punches all the way through your ornament.

 Simple Clay Ornaments from Get Your Crap Together on SewWoodsy.com Bake for 30 minutes on 425 degrees.  Don’t leave it longer.  We don’t want it to burn.

(PS Please ignore the nasty baking sheet.  This one is for “crafting”.)

Simple Clay Ornaments from Get Your Crap Together on SewWoodsy.com Last, thread your ribbon onto a needle.  This helps since your ribbon tends to not go through the hole you punched earlier on its own.

  1. I have seen so many cute clay projects lately! Love this. Maybe i can make one with our dogs paw print since we don’t have any kiddos 🙂

    • Tania–I love that idea. Maybe I’ll make one for my pooch this year! Just be careful not sure about the toxins in the clay that could harm the dog. Definitely do a little research before you give it a try! 😉

  2. I love how easy this is and it will be a great memory every year when you trim the tree. Wonderful job Chelsea!!!
