I hope you guys are well.
I wanted to see if I could make some Christmas ornaments using cookie cutters and air dry clay. Guess what? It worked. This is going to be a great project for the weekend with my girls.
Things I used: mini rolling pin that’s used for clay activities, toothpick, cookie cutters, and air dry clay
I pressed little alphabet beads into the heart, spelling out LOVE, and two gold beads for Mr. Gingerbread
According to the container, it takes about 2 – 3 days for the clay to dry. Since I pressed little beads into the clay it did crack a bit during the drying process. I just used a toothpick and inserted a little bit more clay in the areas that was noticeable then let the clay dry once again. I used pink and white twine to string it up the heart.
I painted Mr. Gingerbread a lovely Acorn color (Martha Stewart acrylic paint) with a small paintbrush.
This project has endless possibilities!
Take good care all.
Until next time…
