Day 4 on our advent calendar tasks was to make ornaments for our Christmas tree. I decided to make some super simple air dry clay ornaments because they were quick and easy and could be done during Imogen's nap times.
They are seriously super duper simple! Just roll out your clay and cut out shapes with cookie cutters. I then used a small piping tip to poke holes in the top of each shape. I left mine to dry overnight and they were perfect in the morning. Keep in mind we are in the middle of a heat wave on the Gold Coast so f you are in a cooler climate they may take a little while longer to dry out.
This morning I cut my lengths of ribbon and threaded them through the holes and popped them onto the tree. So simple it's ridiculous! There are so many things you could do with these too. I chose to leave mine plain but you could paint yours or emboss them before cutting out the shapes. Little Paper Lane used hers as gift tags on her present. Use your imagination and have fun with them!
