Recently when Treetopia interviewed me about what little touches I like to add to make my trees special I mentioned handmade ornaments.  Marbled clay ring dishes are all the rage (remember the paper version I made) so I thought it would be fun to translate this look into a Valentine’s Day ornament.  These were so easy to make and I love the way they turned out.

Supplies

Using 2-3 colors of air dry clay (I used Crayola Model Magic) make a swirled pattern of marbleized clay.  Using a clay rolling pin flatten out your clay.

Use your cookie cutter to make hearts.  While the clay is still soft use a straw to poke a hole in the top.  Allow the clay to dry overnight and when dry add string or yarn through the hole for hanging.

Shazam! I’m pretty smitten with how everything is looking.  What do you think?  Remember my pink wreath from last year?  What about the time I made that paper chain with Photo Booth strips?  I hand flocked the deer on that wreath with sand.  Oh and look closely and you will see the adorable little pipe cleaner Valentine ornaments I made last year.
