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!
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.
