Clay Snowman Christmas Ornament

These oven-baked clay snowmen can double as Christmas tree ornaments and gift tags. For the eyes and mouth, roll small balls from black clay, place on a baking sheet, and press to flatten slightly. Use small amounts of orange clay to make tiny carrot noses (approximately 3/4-inch long).

Bake the eye, nose, and mouth shapes on a cookie sheet according to package directions and let cool. Roll a 1/4-inch thick slab of white clay onto waxed paper; use a cookie cutter to cut circles. Use the photo for inspiration to decorate the snowmen's faces. Poke a hole in the top of each head with a toothpick, making it large enough for a chenille stem. Once the snowman is finished, bake according to instructions. Thread a chenille stem through each hole; twist ends to secure
