Craft Projects

Making your own ornaments is a great project to do with your kids. I found an old recipe I had for this homemade clay DIY tutorial.

It's easy and an inexpensive way to get your kids to create ornaments for family and friends this holiday season.

What you need

  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups cold water
  • saucepan and spoon

What to do

  1. Mix together the ingredients in a saucepan.
  2. Put saucepan over medium heat.
  3. Stirring constantly (yes, don't take your eyes off of this!).
  4. It's done when the clay is thick and resembles mash potatoes!
  5. Cool on a plate until you can work it with your hands.
  6. Roll, cut or shape as you wish.
  7. Let dry for about 2 to 3 days.
  8. Paint as you wish.

Ornament Tips

  • Be sure to add a hole to the creation before it dries.
  • Palm sized ornaments worked best, you will have some cracking if it's anything larger than your hand.
  • These ornaments will be very hard after drying, but can be broken if dropped to the floor. Handle with care!
