Homemade Personalized Clay Ornaments using Stamps | Christmas Craft


Homemade Personalized Clay Ornaments using Stamps | Christmas Craft


A few weeks ago I saw the cutest ornaments on Pinterest! What caught my attention was the recipe. It wasn't a salt dough recipe like all the others I had seen. So I pinned it! I thought they would make great little gifts for the kids at school. Click here for the recipe and instructions!

Update: The link above no longer works sorry folks! I did find a similar recipe here so I will copy it out and include a link to it as well for the rest of the instructions! 

Recipe:
1 cup of corn starch 
2 cups baking soda 
1.25 cups cold water


Here are a few photos and tips on how I made mine...

I found that the dough was very pliable, so when I first started cutting out my shapes they were getting stretched and started losing their shape when I transferred them to the baking sheet. So I decided to roll them out directly on to the Silpat, which also keeps them from sticking during the baking process. I then just removed the excess dough. This way the shapes were perfect, they didn't even crack!

To make the whole, I just used the end of a straw!

To personalize each one of them I used a black ink pad and these great little alphabet stamps I found a Micheal's in their Dollar bins!

Aren't they so cute?... The cookie cutters I used were very small which makes them the perfect size for gift tags too! I had so much fun making these with my daughter, she wants to make more... maybe colored ones next time!

Thanks for stopping by!

  6. These are really cute! Our family takes karate, and I just recently bought ninja cookie cutters. They'd be hilarious as ornaments! P.S. I'm pinning this :)
