Holiday Bonanza: Paper Clay Christmas Ornaments with Courtney Cerruti

Paper Clay Christmas Ornaments

This post is part of Creativebug’s Holiday Bonanza. Check out the rest of the videos in the series here.

In this class, Courtney demonstrates how to work with paper clay to make gorgeous, personalized ornaments. Paper clay is an air-dry medium (no baking required), making this the perfect project for kids and adults alike. Once your ornaments are cut out and have dried, learn how decorate them with gold leaf, watercolor, and little messages. Hang these ornaments on the tree or tie them to gifts for an extra special handmade touch.
