Place an old winter hat on top of the clay. Use rolling pin to create an imprint.

Step 3

Use cookie cutter on the clay to create the ornament shape.

Step 4

Use straw to create a hole close to the top of the ornament. Dry overnight.

When dry, paint ornament with watercolours.

Add accents with glitter glue. Dry 3–4 hours.

Step 7

Tie ribbon or string through the hole and tie to complete the ornament.
