Hi friends! How are you doing?
Me and my son have been making Christmas ornaments over here. And we’d sure love to share.
They are really easy and a lot of.
I think there’s just something really special about making handmade ornaments?
All you need is some air dry clay, a rolling pin, a couple of Christmas cookie cutters, a straw, a few interestingly textured items to give your ornaments some lovely festive patterns, brush and watercolors and some yarn. That’s it.
To make our ornaments, we first rolled our clay into about 3 mm thickness.
We used our cutters to cut out various shapes.
We used a fir tree branch and a rolling print to make a fun imprint.
We also used a piece of burlap ribbon to make a pattern.
To make sure we’ll be able to hang our ornaments, we made holes in them using a straw.
We let the ornaments dry for a day or two. And then we painted them.
Finally we added festive pieces of yarn to be able to hang our ornaments.
Easy and fun.
We are wishing you the best Holiday Season!
We love you,
Petra and her family
I am thrilled to announce that two weeks ago our little Mr.P was born. He is healthy and oh so handsome. Our hearts are overflowing with love and joy.
See you when things get a little settled around here (right now I am in the process of learning how to do just about everything with one hand). 🙂
With lots & lots & lots of love,
P.S.: Any advice on spending the first weeks at home with a new baby will be greatly appreciated…
