Scandinavian-Inspired Clay Ornaments

By Olivia Kanaley, DIY Editor

With Christmas only a few weeks away it’s time to start decking the halls and trimming the tree. These clay ornaments are a snap to make, and their soft matte white finish gives them a crisp modern look. Pair with birch tones and red accents for a Scandinavian-inspired holiday.



Step one: Roll out clay with rolling pin until it is about a 1/4″ thick.
Step two: Cut shape with cookie cutter.
Step three: Use a toothpick or pin to make a hole in the top edge of the ornament as shown. Make sure the hole is large enough to fit twine or ribbon. Set aside and let dry for 24-48 hours.
Step four: Cut a length of twine and fold it in half. Place a small amount of glue on the end and twist together. Insert into hole on ornament, adding a little more glue if necessary.
