DIY Clay Snowflake Garland

Hello! I had some leftover clay from my DIY stocking tags, so I decided to make a cute garland.


This is the clay I used. You can use oven baked or air dry clay, but I chose air dry clay this time - I like the Sculpey brand best. It seems softer and easier to work with than other brands I have tried in the past.


I had these snowflake pie cutters that I thought would be perfect for a clay garland. These pie cutters are cool because they both cut the snowflake shape, as well as emboss the design into the snowflake.


You just push the spring knob down to emboss the design. I had 4 different snowflake pie cutters, so I used them all to get a variety of snowflakes for my garland.


I used the end of a paint brush to make holes in 2 of the pointy edges of each snowflake.

Since I used air dry clay, I had to wait 24 hours for them to dry before I could string them on kitchen twine to make a garland. I put them on a piece of parchment paper to dry, but a cookie sheet or other non-stick paper would be fine as well.

I spaced my snowflakes about 3” apart on the kitchen twine. I did try regular jute twine, but it was too thick to string through the holes I made. I like the white of the kitchen twine better though anyway! The snowflakes look super cute with my other Christmas garlands in my kitchen window!
