DIY Stamped Clay Christmas Ornamnets

Thinking about making some festive and personalized handmade ornaments with the kids this holiday season? A few years ago we made these hand stamped ornaments and they turned out so beautiful!
 
For this craft you’ll need:
 
craft clay (We used Crayola brand air dry clay.)
craft paint or spray pint
alphabet letter stamps (craft store)
holiday shaped cookie cutters
drinking straw (to make a small hole for ribbon)
ribbon
small bells or embellishments
 
 

I know there is a ton of clay options out there, but I just used this bucket of Air Dry Clay by Crayola. Making these was super fun..just like playing with Play-Dough!

I rolled some dough out on wax paper and used cookie cutters for the shapes. Then I used a straw for the hole at the top, and regular rubber stamps for personalizing. (I found a set of letters for around $5 with coupon at Joanne’s.) Also Michael’s had a whole bin of $1 holiday stamps. Notice how I used that snowflake ornament as an imprint!
After they air dried, we spray painted the front and back. You could use a craft paint too. The last thing I did was add ribbon and a bell to some of them, and raffia to others.

My brother had just been married that year and I made some with their wedding date as gifts.

We made some for the kids’ teachers too!

Have fun and be creative with whatever supplies and stamps you may have. I love that these can be personalized with names, years, and really whatever you’d like!
Happy holiday crafting!!
