Seeing Stars

Handmade clay ornaments! 

I first saw these on Pinterest...are you still a 

"Pinterest Junkie" like I am?  

So many great ideas there! 





I also want to give credit to Jen over at 


Jen made some beautiful ornaments too and shares the link to the 

Pinterest site with the recipe to make these.




This was so much fun, I just had to share! 

I felt like a kid again, making these Christmas ornaments.




My star shape cookie cutter was the same one I used

 years ago, to make sugar cookies with my mom. 




For me, I like the simple white with natural twine.

If you want color, you could try painting them! 




Here's a shot of my ornaments on a doily 

I crocheted with my favorite linen yarn. 

(the same yarn I used for the star garland 

I made that you can see HERE)




"This is not your grandma's doily" 
:-)

(Although...I am still working on my fine, thread crochet skills to make 

those pretty, grandma doilies. Lol )




I'm pretty sure I'll be making more of these "easy" clay ornaments.  I think they 

will make pretty gift tags too.

Let me know if you make some...I'd love to see your style!

These are LOVELY, Becca! I've been playing with polymer clays for a few months now, and this gives me some great ideas! These almost do look good enough to eat. ;o) Your doily is so pretty. I love the natural yarns you use. So great to catch up with you here after being away a couple weeks for travels and Thanksgiving. Happy Days, my friend ((HUGS))

those are gorgeous Becca! Such a pretty design...they could be everyday ornaments too!

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

They are absolutely adorable, gorgeous, and stunning Becca...

I love them, and even more so because of the star cutter, and the embossing.

Next I want to use my snowflake cookie cutter, I think those would be fun.

I love and adore these stars Becca!! Did your cookie cutter have the pattern in it that is on top of the stars? I have wanted to try working with clay for about ten years. I think seeing your beautiful stars has given me the push to actually do it! That is going to be one of my resolutions for 2013. :)

now arent they just gorgeous and elegant..love the crochet too...I love it at the moment as it sort of gives you a hug in cold weather somehow

Judy S. said...

Very pretty, Becca! How'd you get the design on the clay? That makes an ordinary star beautiful!

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

They are beautiful! I bought some white polymer clay to make some but haven't done it yet. Monica at The White Bench shared how she makes tags with it. Your doily is lovely, too. I bought some crochet thread over the weekend but my fingers don't work well with it and the small hook. I used a silver thread and held it together with thin white cotton to crochet some of the stars that you shared the pattern for. :) They work up so quickly -- but the problem is just finding time to do more. Hope your day is great! Tammy

What a great project, I think clay ornaments may be in my future too! Thanks for sharing.

Justine said...

I saw something else on these yesterday, what clay did you use? they are so pretty

Georgianna said...

I rarely get excited about ornaments but I LOVE your stars! Love them!! And how neat you are using the same cookie cutter. That's it – you've inspired me to get everything done I need to so I can play with some fun projects like this.

I'll definitely make them - they look so gorgeous! I love the simplicity of the things you create Becca - thought-ful, and beautiful, and always, always, inspiring.
Happy Holidays!
