Cloud Clay – Easy DIY for Christmas Star

Cloud Clay, it’s not jus for kids! This is such an easy and beautiful idea for handmade Christmas ornaments!

Amaco Cloud Clay  in white. Here’s what I made:

Some of the items that I used were:

This stuff is so fluffy, light and white.  (It does come in other colors.)

Choose your cookie cutter. Get the kids involved, it’s for ages 3+.

(How about Gingerbread people?)

I decided on snow flakes!

Use it just like you’re cutting cookies. It sticks to itself and not to your hands.

I used my stylus (affiliate link to Amazon) to create a hole at the top. Now I can hang it on the tree or use it for a gift tag.

You could use a toothpick or skewer.

 Dry-overnight-because it dries in 24 hours.

I want to add some sparkle. So I coated the dry  snowflakes with Amaco All-Purpose Sealer and sprinkled with diamond glitter.

I decided to stick with one theme for my clay, with cookie cutters and glitter, the possibilities are endless. Have fun with it.

  40. LOVE LOVE the snowflakes .. and of course I follow your blog ..what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t ..

  41. What a great idea! I have some snowflakes I bought years ago at a craft fair on Maui. They’re made out of some type of resin, but I’ve always adored them and wanted to get more. This will be a great way for me to do that. Is this clay available at Michaels and Hobby Lobby? Never heard of it. What is the cost for a bag and approximately how many ornaments were you able to make?

  42. What a fun and easy looking craft! I would do snowflakes too. I’m a new follower.

  43. These are just adorable. How crafty of you!

    I appreciate you linking to Potpourri Friday! You are such a big help in making it a success!

  44. I adore working with air dry clay! And I’m loving the glitter you added to your sweet snowflakes! Is that Cloud Clay different from any other clay? 🙂

    xoxo laurie

  45. Wow…that stuff looks great! I currently use the Crayola white natural earth air dry clay. Love the soft look of this product…count me in!

  48. What a wonderful tutorial, and in my opinion just in time to start working on holiday decorations. I’ve pinned this in my very first board on pinterest http://pinterest.com/cmoh/total-rockin-tutorials/

  49. I love this look. So pretty!! I can’t wait to make some for myself 🙂

    Thanks for visiting & leaving such sweet comments!


  50. Wow…these are too precious! Now I feel so behind…gotta get going and try making these for my Snowman tree. Thanks for the inspiration.

  51. I linked from today’s “At the Picket Fence” and found the snowflakes. I love them. I got ornaments after Christmas for a steal last year but I’m so cheap by the time I got there most were gone, See I want all white ornaments. Or crystally–got a diy crystal bead instruction I’ve got to dig out and get going on too. Thanks!

  52. These are adorable…the possibilities are endless, thank you for sharing! I hope you don’t mind that I “pinned” your idea on Pinterest!

  53. i would love to try this! beautiful!

  54. Cloud Clay looks very neat! We can have lots of fun with it! THANKS! Mary Beth

  55. Very cool idea for a classroom project. Using a 4pz package of Cloud Clad, how many snowflakes were you able to make? I’m trying to gage how much to purchase. Could you advise please?

  56. I would love to try this. I have 6 grandkids. Two of them spend the night often. They would have so much fun at making ornaments or gifts for the family. It would be lots of fun. Thanks so much, Emilia
