Step by step – so you make the mini knitting set from the picture gallery as original jewelry for your Christmas tree yourself:
Make Christmas tree decorations – from clay
London-based stylist and author Sania Pell made Christmas tree decorations – which is not only delightful, but also very easy to copy.
“I particularly like this Christmas tree decoration, because it is easy to make, costs little and looks great – in contrast to the dark needles of the Christmas tree, but also on white sprayed branches. Because the pendants are handmade, everyone is unique.
The Christmas tree decorations are made of air-drying clay. I used snowflake stamps on some of the pendants, which I pressed into the still wet clay. I have labeled others with letter stamps. In the end, all you need is beautiful strips of fabric, cords or gift ribbons to attach the pendants. “
Making Christmas tree decorations – you need this:
white air-drying clay (500g becomes approx. 50 pendants)
Knife (small, sharp kitchen knife)
Snowflake, heart or other stamp
large embroidery needle
Nail file or fine sandpaper
Make Christmas tree decorations out of clay – how it works:
Take a handful of clay. Roll it out on the cutting board with the rolling pin until it is 2 to 3 mm thick.
Cuts rectangles approx. 9 cm long and 3 cm wide from the clay. The pendants become even more beautiful if they are a little different. If you have small rectangles left, use them for the small pendants. Mine in the photo are about 2 cm x 1 cm.
Press the decorative stamp into the clay while it is still wet. Make a hole in the clay with the wooden skewer.
Place the tags on plastic bags to dry – for at least 24 hours, occasionally turning them over.
When they are dry, file the edges smooth using a file or sandpaper.
Use the letters to stamp words on the pendants. Any stains can be removed with the nail file.
Use the embroidery needle to pull the cord through the hole.
