Easy Air Dry Clay Valentine Ornaments


I know, I know – big surprise I have a Valentine’s Day tree.  Actually I have 6 plus a wreath, but who is counting?  Pop over to the Treetopia blog for the full reveal and for a chance to enter the #xotreetopia giveaway.  In the meantime let’s talk Valentine tree ornaments.


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 with air dry clay.  These were so easy to make and I love the way they turned out.




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.


Head over to Treetopia and enter the #xoTreetopia giveaway today.  I’m just the first stop on a really awesome week long blog hop of amazingly talented ladies.
