Tutorial: Clay Snowflake Ornaments

Make it a white Christmas with DIY clay snowflake ornaments.It's always fun to participate in events with other bloggers, so when I saw that Erlene from My Pinterventures was hosting a 2015 Christmas Ornament Exchange, I jumped at the opportunity to participate.

I'm exchanging ornaments with Pili from My Sweet Things. Like me, she lives in a temperate climate, so I decided to make her a clay snowflake ornament to give her a little bit of a white Christmas. (Here's a peek at the ornament Pili made for me).

Many thanks to Endless Leather for providing the gorgeous red leather cord I used in this tutorial.



When I'm working with polymer clay, I like to protect my work surface with a sheet of parchment paper. I also make sure to take off my rings so they don't get gunked up.

Start by tracing the large, round cookie cutter onto a piece of paper and cutting out the paper circle. Cut out the circle and fold it into quarters to mark the center of the circle.
Roll out a piece of clay so it is between 1/8 and 1/4 inch. Use the cookie cutter to cut a circle.
Place the paper circle over the clay circle and use a pin to pierce the paper and mark the center of the clay circle. You don't need to go all the way through the clay.
Use the flower cutter at the center of the circle. The pin mark makes it easier to center the flower cutter.
Next, use the diamond cutter to make six diamonds around the flower. The diamond points should be aligned between the petals of the flower.
Cut a teardrop between each diamond.
And finally, cut two triangles between each teardrop.

To finish, bake the clay according to the package directions. After the clay has cooled, cut a 10 inch length of leather cord. Knot the ends and attach it to the ornament.
And now, my snowflake ornament is all wrapped up and on it's way to Mallorca to spread a little holiday cheer!
