Hello, beautiful people, and welcome back to my corner of the web! I hope you are all as thoroughly excited by that post title as I am... we are in firm run-up-to-Christmas territory and I simply could not be more emotionally ready.
This year, my boyfriend and I have decided to do Christmas a little differently. Rather than doing all the presents on Christmas day, we're going to create some DIY advent calendars and pad them out with fun gifts, Christmassy activities and things like that all throughout December.
It's (hopefully) going to be a fun way to spread out the festive cheer. God knows we need it - life in Melbourne over the past year and a half has been real dull.
Anyways, this smorgasbord of festivity is going to take some real planning, (uh…and budgeting) so your girl is starting early! Today, we're going to tackle some super cute and easy DIY clay ornaments - and then I'm going to pop them into my partner's advent calendar.
These DIY air dry clay ornaments came out so well! They're whimsical, cute and - better yet - super easy for anyone to make. Shall we get into it?
See! A wonderfully minimal supply list - hell, if you're a crafter like me, you've probably got all of this in your cupboard!
And that is it. These were surprisingly easy and enjoyable to make! If you watched the video, you may notice that I started with a relatively small batch - but they were so fun that I ended up making tons! (I even sold a few on Etsy.)
I hope you guys enjoyed this little project. I'm definitely all here for the Christmas crafting - but let me know what you guys prefer! Shall we keep making decorations like these and our DIY botanical Christmas decor ideas? Or shall we move onto DIY gift ideas? Let me know your thoughts down below!
