“Spring is nature’s way of saying let’s party.” — Robin Williams

Now that Spring is here, its a perfect time to add a little color to your house and get the kids involved in a fun project. I am bringing these ornaments into my son’s preschool so that each child can decorate their own ornament to hang at home. You can use paint, markers, crayons, glue, glitter and more on the ornaments so the sky’s the limit! Bonus- you probably have the ingredients for the clay in your pantry already. Here is the recipe that I used for the Baking Soda Clay

OK lets get started…

Materials:

  • Sequins
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Paint
  • Glitter
  • Glue
  • Can also use: Markers, Construction Paper, Stickers, Crayons, Washi Tape, Stamps, and more!

Step 1: After you make the dough, you will want to roll it out and use a cookie cutter to make shapes. We used chicks, bunnies and eggs. I then put a hole in each shape while the clay was still soft so that I can hang the ornament. If do not want to hang it, skip the hole.

Step 2: Cut your string about 4 inches and thread it through the hole. Tie a knot so that the ornament can hang freely.

Step 3: Now get creative! I painted my ornament a springy pink.

Step 4: Then I added glitter because everything is better with sparkles!

Step 5: Using glue add your sequins. I layered a few sequins on top of each other to create the flowers below.

Voila! After it dries, you can put it on an indoor tree, door knob even layer several in a basket. If you would like to use these ornaments as outdoor decorations, you will need to seal them with water resistant Modge Podge or something similar.
