DIY Christmas Clay Decoration

It’s me Mette again from monsterscircus – Such a pleasure to be here today and I’m going to give you an idea on how to make a modern Christmas decoration.
Let’s face it, we really don’t have much time on the time of the year so why not make things easier for ourselves? There’s a lot opportunities in this DIY and it’s so simple that anyone can be a part of this project.



Clay, air hardening whatever you prefer

Flower wire


Fresh flower, cones, candles use the things that speaks to your heart.


Start by forming the clay, of course you make any shape you like.

Use a knife and a ruler to make the straight edges.

Place the wire in the clay.

Use as many as you like.

Leave it to dry overnight or until hard.

And now to the fun part spoil it with fresh flowers, gilded cones, simply use your imagination.


Bells and green goes well too and soften the graphic lines of this arrangement – If you like the natural look keep it as it is or maybe you’d like to paint it with your favorite Christmas color.


Glitter is so so good for keeping the Christmas spirit high.


Or maybe you want to add a candle on the wires. It’s your choice and think out of the Christmas box. If the traditional Christmas style is more you, you could add some felted trees or sew some cute ornaments to make it shine. I hope this idea can spread some Holiday cheer and make your joyous preparation for Christmas easier.

Thank you for joining me here today, and thank you Gudy for having me, I hope you think this has a kind of eclectic style.



How about some extra inspiration?
