A while back I ran across a post on the A Beautiful Mess website about how to make clay ornaments. Now, of course I know how to make these. They are super easy. But A Beautiful Mess made them look so simple and elegant. These are not generally two words I associate with Sculpey clay. So, I thought I would give it a try. Here is what I came up with. Thanks A Beautiful Mess for the great inspiration!

I did do a few things differently. I couldn't find a cookie cutter so I cut the shapes out with scissors. It worked. I forgot to put holes in them before baking. No problem, I drilled holes later. I felt like drawing with a marker, so I decorated with a Sharpie instead of paint. I also wanted to protect the front so I sealed them with a clear acrylic sealer (which caused some of the marker to bleed.) Super fun! Super easy! And they look great.
