Cookie Cutter Ornaments

We had bakers clay left over from the bears (which dried but now need super glue to stick them back together because they've been handled and dropped a few times in the drying process) so we made cookie cutter ornaments out of it. Little Chef got a few cookie cutters for his birthday and we used those. A hole for hanging the ornaments was made with a drinking straw. we put them in the oven on 300 degrees for about an hour We've not done this before so we tried a variety of thicknesses. The star in the upper left was VERY thin. The ones in the shape of the blown glass ornaments were a little thick and got a bit fat in the oven. Here they are just baked.

Here are a few in the beginning stages of being painted. Obviously we have plenty more to paint.

And here are just a few finished ornaments. We used acrylic paints we had on hand as well as some shiny fabric paint.
