Ornament or Gift Tag

These are a fun way to personalize teacher gifts or give something to that relative who already has it all!  These are made from air dry clay but you can also make it with salt dough or cinnamon (smell great!).

Materials

  • Air dry clay
  • Cookie cutters
  • Stamps (letters or images)
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Straw
  • Ribbon
Directions
  1. Roll out the air dry clay so that it's about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Use cookie cutters to make appropriate shapes.  Stars, round ornaments, angels, candy canes, gingerbread men, etc.
  3. Using the straw, cut out a hole for the ribbon to slip through at the top.
  4. Using stamps, make a design.  For teachers "a b c" might be cute.  Or other holiday words like "joy" and "hope".
  5. Paint the air dry clay.  Use gold, silver, green, red, etc.
  6. Allow to dry--probably 24 hours.
  7. String a ribbon through the hole.
Other ornaments kids can make can be found here.
