Are you overwhelmed with Christmas crafts? We hope not ...  here's one Sufiya, I and the boys made last week. A simple but most important fun thing to do and we all love the result.

White Christmas ornaments made out of air dry clay and cookie cutters from Ikea. Both easy things to find. 

Here's a little tip or two. 

* Roll out the clay thinly. Our's were at least 5mm wide. 

*Cookie cutters are sharp, do make sure your kids are not pressing their fingers onto the sharp side. 

*During the process of drying the clay, flip the ornament onto its other side to avoid the bottom being too flat. We let them completely air dry for a full day. 

*Sand paper edges to have that smooth finish. Simple right? 

 

They are quick and easy, you still have time to add these to your tree.
