Easter Egg Ornaments

eggornament

I have this “tree” I keep in my dining room.  I started decorating it for holidays last year.  I did Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day.  Then I got pregnant and I was exhausted so I pretty much stopped doing everything except sleeping and eating.  So now that my little boy is here, I am able to craft again while he naps. Yay!   These polymer clay Easter Egg ornaments were super easy to make and came out really cute.

Materials:

polymer clay

-egg shaped cookie cutters

stamps

-acrylic paint

-rolling pin

-string

First, you roll out your clay using a rolling-pin just as you would cookie dough.  Use the cookie cutters to make your desired shapes.

Once you’ve cut out all of your shapes, you can use the stamps to add some texture to the clay.  Next, bake the clay in the oven for 12-15 minutes at 250 degrees.  Once the clay has cooled you can begin painting.  I painted a base color on each egg and then went back after it was dry and added some other colorful designs to each egg.

After the paint is totally dry, use the Mod Podge to seal it.  Then just tie the string and hang.
