These simple farmhouse Christmas clay ornaments are super easy to make. You just need oven bake clay or air dry clay, ribbon, letter stamps and black paint. Or you can use a paint marker and write your own lettering on. Below I have a video tutorial showing you exactly how I made these.

Supplies
Sculpey Oven-bake Clay – White
Ribbon
Circle Cookie Cutter
Letter Stamps
Black Acyrlic Paint

Directions:
1. Knead clay according to package directions.
2. Roll out clay and cut out circle shapes with circle cookie cutter.
3. Stamp wording with letter stamps
4. Make a small hole about 1/8″ from top of clay circle. Make the hole large enough to thread ribbon through for hanging.
5. Place on baking sheet and bake according to package directions. If you use air dry clay then baking will not be required.
6. Once ornaments have baked take black paint and paint in the letters. If you prefer to use paint markers or a sharpie then you can but make sure it has a fine tip.
7. Thread ribbon through.
8. Hang on Christmas tree or package and enjoy!
