This year has been a strange one and unhappy for some. For me it has been mainly a blessing as it brought me more time with my teenagers which wouldn’t normally happen.

Our homes became a haven during this crazy year, they kept us safe and warm . My home was filled with love, laughter and sometimes quite a lot of chaos.

How to make House Clay Christmas decorations for the tree

Materials:

These House clay Christmas Decorations make a fabulous keepsake gift for grandparents and godparents. I have come to treasure these sort of tree decorations now my boys are getting older and this year I have made extra for our friends and family.

Start by rolling out your chosen clay to about 1/4 inch in thickness. I use a silicone mat to ensure smoothness and do a small amount at a time turning it over.

Use your cookie cutter to cut out the houses. Remove the clay from around the houses and press a finger in to make an indent and then make a small hole with your round punch or straw and allow to dry.

Once dry it is time to decorate. Colour over your fingerprint indent with ink on your finger. We chose metallic colours.

You can then add a date or family name

Depending on the clay you have used, if you want your decorations to last a lifetime then I would encourage you to spray varnish your creations. We are fans of Rustoleum Crystal Clear (UK Link/US Link) and it comes in gloss or matt.

I also think that tiny stamps would work really well on this, especially if you want something a little less handmade and rustic!
