Christmas Scented Homemade Clay Ornaments

These clay ornaments are not only easy to make, but making these are a great way to spend time with your family. You could add this to your countdown till Christmas list or make some of these every year as a reminder of family time you spent together.

Supplies Needed To Make These Scented Clay Ornaments

All you need is:

These are the main things you need, but there are also optional supplies to really make these ornaments your own.

Optional:

  • Acrylic paint
  • Glitter
  • Cookie stamps

The one we have been using is Christmas Spirit  – the most perfect Christmas-y oil ever. Use this orange, cinnamon, and spruce blend in a diffuser and your home will really smell like Christmas!

How To Make Clay Ornaments

  1. To make this clay ornament grab a bit of air-dry clay and smooth it out with a rolling pin.
  2. Cut out a circle with a wine glass or use a cookie cutter to make a fun shape like a Christmas tree or a bell, etc.
  3. Then, use a straw to poke a hole in the top for the ribbon to string through.
  4. Next you can design the ornament with anything you have around the house with a design. For instance, a plastic letter that kids play with to put your initial on top. Or use a star play-doh shape maker like I did. Cookie stamps are also a good option and have many Christmas themed ones.
  5. Flip it over and add 4 drops of essential oil to the back and then leave it to dry for a day or two.
  6. Add a piece of ribbon and hang it on the tree!

Note:

If the scent starts drying you can add a couple more drops to the back to make them smell good again!

Make These Air Dry Clay Ornaments Spectacular

These DIY clay ornaments are lovely as is, but you can make them spectacular and unique. When you’re rolling the clay, add some glitter! Chunky glitter, fine glitter, there are so many different color combinations!

Some of my favorite Christmas colors are: red, green, silver, and gold. But loud colors are very popular too, so rainbows and neon colors like pink and green work well too!

Acrylic paint works best on air dry clay ornaments. It dries the best, keeps its boldness, and lasts the longest on it.
