Today, it’s all about the DIY ornaments! I’ve teamed up with my friends at Seasons of Home to bring you the very best ornament ideas for your Christmas tree this year. The biggest thank you to Kristen from Ella Claire for bringing this amazing group of bloggers together for the holidays.
Clay is one of my favorite mediums to work with when it comes to ornaments, so it was no surprise when I found THESE sweater cookie cutters. I knew exactly what I was going to do with them for this year’s holiday theme. So, let’s make DIY cozy sweater ornaments together. You’ll need sweater cookie cutters, Scultpy Clay, craft paints, and jute to tie. You could also use salt dough to make these.
Roll the Sculpty clay so that it’s 1/4″ -3/8″ thick, and press the cookie cutters firmly into the clay. Peel off excess and make indentations for the collar and cuffs. I used a flat butter knife. Next, you’re going to press a hole in the top and bake them for 15 min at 225 degrees.
Next, it was time to paint. I used 5 coastal colors and created two patterns. The trick is to water the paint down, almost like a watercolor, and go back if it’s too light, otherwise, it looks gloppy. Both patterns I free-handed, but I think that’s part of the charm.
These would also make great gift tags on wine, boxes, and gift bags. You could also personalize them with names for a place setting.
