Easy Clay Ornaments!

Looking for a recipe to make ornaments for the holidays?
We found the best one and you only need everyday kitchen ingredients to do it!

What you will need!

  •  2 cups baking soda
  •  1 cup cornstarch
  •  1.1/4 cup water
  •  Cookie cutters/stamps
  •  Straw for the holes
  •  Ribbons for hanging ornaments

What to do

  • Mix the baking soda and cornstarch in a pan. Add the water and mix. Place on stove (medium heat) and bring to a boil stirring constantly throughout.
  • In few minutes, the watery mixture will thicken and suddenly become almost like mashed potatoes. Straight away remove from the heat and place mixture onto a cookie sheet in one lump. Cover with a damp cloth and leave to cool.
  • Once it is cool enough to work with, lightly dust the surface with cornstarch and roll it out into a snake roll. Divide it into smaller chunks. It will have the smooth consistency of fondant.
  • Stamp it with stamps (with or without ink) and then cut it with the cookie cutter, finishing it off with a hole using the straw.
  • Leave it to air dry overnight.
