Easy clay ornaments for any occasion.
Ideas for your dough shapes:

• Use stamps or embossers to make impressions in the dough, these can then be used as gift tags.

• Alternatively, you can paint the shapes or write names of them once the dough is dry.

• String the shapes together on some twine to make a pretty garland to hang over your door, or on the Christmas tree.
