First of all Emilia rolled the clay out flat on the table to about 1-2cms thick using a rolling pin, and then carefully cut out her festive shapes using pastry cutters. Emilia went for a Christmas tree and a star but the options for different festive shapes are endless! You could even cut your own creations out with a craft knife if you have a steady hand.

Next Emilia punched a hole at the top of her shapes with a straw, making sure not to place it too close to the edge. The clay was then left to air dry overnight, and once hard it was time to decorate with colourful paint and lots of glitter. Emilia even painted little baubles on her Christmas tree!

Once the paint had dried, Emilia threaded some curling ribbon through the holes she made earlier and secured them with a knot to form a loop. Her decorations were then ready to be hung up on a tree or from a hook to add a touch of sparkle to her home.
