Painted Clay Ornaments – Cheap Christmas Craft for Kids

Please remember, I’m not crafty, I’m not a tutorial maker, and I have about as much passion for glitter and glue as every other guy out there. What I do enjoy though, is spending time with the tiny human and finding crafty things she enjoys doing to share with her. So that’s what this month is all about! Let Charlie have a little creative fun, get her excited for Christmas, and enjoy some quality time! Today we are making Painted Clay Ornaments!



  • Oven Baked Clay
  • Cookie Cutters
  • Acrylic Paint


The Clay

Oven baked clay has become a very popular thing in this house. It comes in various colors or you can just get the grey oven baked clay. Roll it out thin about 1/4″ thick. Use your cookie cutters to cut out various Christmas Shapes and place them on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Pre-Heat your oven to 250 Degrees. Use a straw to cut out a ribbon hole for hanging in the top of each ornament. Ornaments will need to bake for about 30-45 minutes.


Now just paint your ornaments however you choose and you’re good to go! You have some fun, cheap, easy ornaments your tiny one can make and hang on the tree!
