7 DAYS OF BLOGMAS // DAY 3: CLAY STAR TREE ORNAMENTS

Every year, I see other bloggers and vloggers doing some sort of Christmas countdown and every year I think to myself that I wish I had been organised enough to do one. So this year, although I still haven't been organised enough to do a countdown for the whole of December (I am also supposed to be writing my thesis!), I thought I would attempt a smaller countdown; my very own 7 Days of Blogmas. Make sure you don't miss a single post by following Isoscella on Bloglovin.

It's Day 3 of my mini countdown and the DIY I'm sharing with you today is one that I did last year but never got around to posting it on here. Although I haven't used it much recently for my DIY's (this must change!), I love using air-dry clay. Partly because of how versatile it is and partly (ok, mostly) because of how quick, simple and easy it can be to get a great result. I recently shared some of my favourite DIY tree ornaments and included these in the mix. From plain to spray painted, these easy clay stars make great tree ornaments, gifts and gift tags! Here's how I made them and what I used...

1. Roll out a portion of air-dry clay.

2. Place the doily on top of the clay and carefully roll over it.

3. Use the cookie cutter to cut out star shapes from the clay.

4. Use a straw to poke out a hole in the top of each star.

5. Leave the clay stars to harden.

6. Cut off a length of twine for each star.

7. Paint or spray each star with varnish.

8. Once dry, poke the twine through each star and knot.

... and that's it!
