DIY Marbled Clay Geometric Ornaments

This year I thought I would give DIY ornaments a try and I’m so glad I did! I made these coasters a little over a year ago and was really wanting to use clay again and thought this would be a perfect opportunity. Because I couldn’t decide on a shape, I went with four! I think it turned out fun.

Instructions

I started by taking a small chunk of white and putting some black dots on it to begin the marbleizing effect.

After twisting it and folding it in half then repeating the process, it should look about like this.

Then I flattened out the piece with a rolling pin.

I laid out two shapes and simply cut them out with the clay cutter.

I cut a small circle out at the top of what I wanted to be the ornament. In a few of these pictures you will see some of them I did at the vertex of the shape and others I did on the sides. I think they both look cool!

You’ll then bake them in the oven at 275 for about 15 minutes. Then you’ll put your ornament hooks in and hang them up!

I honestly had a lot of fun making these and it’s just a bonus they looked so cute on my tree!

Total Cost

*Since I bought these items, prices have gone down!

  • $12 White Clay
  • $3 Black Clay
  • $6 Clay knife
  • $4 Ornament Hooks 
  • Total: $25

Truthfully, I only used 1/2 of this white clay and already had some of the black clay left over from my previous DIY so I didn’t spend this much! But with what I did use, I made 14 ornaments! That’s less than $2 an ornament. Also, you’ll have clay left over to make those coasters I mentioned which are some of my favorite things in my house. Win win.

Such a pretty little ornament DIY with clay.
