DIY Polymer Clay Christmas Tree Ornaments

DIY Polymer Clay Christmas Tree Ornaments - theprojectlady.comThese Christmas tree ornaments are fun and easy to make.  It only took me an hour from start to finish!

I don’t usually hand out treats or presents to neighbors/friends but decided last minute to make some for the families my husband and I care for from church.

These would be a fun way to sit around the table with extended family and make your own decorations!

Have fun with it!

Supplies Needed:

Oven Bake Polymer Clay (about 1 oz per ornament)

Rolling Pin

Cookie Cutter + Straw

Metal Stamp Set (I like 1/4″ Size)

Objects for Imprinting

Parchment Paper + Baking Tray

Embellishments/Ribbon/String

Work your clay until it’s soft.  Ovoid folding air bubbles inside (my kids were playing with my clay and mine was full of bubbles – oops!).  Roll out on a non-stick surface to be 3/16″-1/4″ thick.  Cut out shapes with your cookies cutter and place over parchment paper on a baking tray.

Preheat oven according to manufacturer directions.

DIY Polymer Clay Christmas Tree Ornaments - theprojectlady.comUse stamp set to imprint whatever you want to put on your ornament.  I work from the last letter to the first letter to make sure I keep enough room from the edge.

DIY Polymer Clay Christmas Tree Ornaments - theprojectlady.comSet greenery or whatever you’re imprinting over and press using a flat object.  Because the clay is pretty solid you’ll need to press harder thank you think.

DIY Polymer Clay Christmas Tree Ornaments - theprojectlady.comUse a straw to cut out the hole for hanging – leave about 1/4″ of clay at the top to ensure the edge isn’t weakened.

Bake and let cool on a rack. (You can see I had some air bubbles – ack!  Oh well, it gives it that handmade touch!)
