These stamped clay Christmas ornaments are so fun to make, for both adults and kids! There are so many different options for holiday stamps at the craft store. I ended up grabbing a couple of packages of clear stamps at Michael’s last time I was there along with some air dry clay.
You can use any kinds of stamps you’d like and any colors of paint! Go! Get crazy!
- Lay out wax paper on a flat surface.
- Warm up a handful of clay by kneading it in your hands.
- Roll out clay, evenly, until it is 1/4 to 1/3 of an inch thick.
- Use the round cutter or a drinking glass to make a circle. Remove excess clay before removing cutter.
- Press Christmas stamps evenly with fingertips into clay. If you press too hard and there is an outline of the edge of the stamp, gently rub with a wet finger to smooth out clay.
- Use coffee straw to make small hole at the top.
- Lay on flat surface to dry for 24 hours. Flip ornament over every couple of hours to prevent sides from lifting.
- Once the clay is dry. Paint with clear glitter paint or varnish. (I used Testor's Craft Intense Glitter Paint)
- Let the glitter paint dry completely.
- Use the DecoArt Ultra Writing Tip and screw it on to the Santa Red Paint. Add dots of paint on all the berries. Let dry and enjoy!
