GINGERBREAD ORNAMENTS MADE WITH CLAY
Is it even Christmas if there’s no gingerbread ornaments or actual cookies? Not in my opinion, and that is why I want to share a small DIY project my mother and me did.
Christmas is a time that brings creativity out in all of us. Whether it might be ornaments, decorations or spending time in the kitchen baking different kinds of cookies. There are so many different ways you can make gingerbread ornaments and decorations. Crochet, dough, felt, paper and in our case with clay.
WHAT WE USED:
❄ Clay ❄ Cookie Cutters for the shapes ❄ Brown Paint or mix red and green colors together to get the brown color ❄ White nail polish or a white kind of mass
- Knead the clay and use a rolling pin until you get an even mass.
- Use your cookie cutters on the flat clay mass. Proceed until you have the right amount. Remember to make a small hole at the top of the head.
- Place the gingerbread shapes somewhere they can dry until the next day.
- Paint the gingerbread shapes in a brown color. If you do not have a brown color, you can mix the colors red and green together (when the color dries, it can look even darker, so make sure to mix it with a little white)
- Let it dry for a couple of hours.
- Decorate the gingerbread with white nail polish (with a thin needle) or thick paint that looks like a glaze.
- Use a ribbon or a thin string in a Christmasy color to hang the gingerbread ornaments on the Christmas tree or wherever you feel like.
