Want to make a Christmas ornament worthy of Tiffany’s? This snowflake ornament is sure to be the envy of your friends.
For this project I used:
White Sculpey clay
Snowflake shaped cookie cutter approximately 2.75 inches wide
10mm x 8 mm oval clay cutter
Gem tac glue
7- 20ss and 36 - 16ss crystal Swarovski Rhinestones Flat back
Jute twine or ribbon for stringing
Tweezer or wax tipped tool
Roll out Sculpey clay to ¼ of an inch thickness. Using the snowflake shaped cookie cutter, cut out shape. Then, using the oval shaped cutter, cut ovals out of the middle of the clay snowflake. Sprinkle the clear glitter on clay snowflake. Place on a cookie sheet that has been lined with white paper. Bake in a preheated 275 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Using Gem Tac glue, place a drop of glue slightly larger than your rhinestone on the clay snowflake. Using a tweezer or wax tipped tool, place a rhinestone in the glue and gently press down allowing glue to cover the edges of the rhinestone. Continue until your snowflake is adorned with rhinestones.
Allow glue to dry for 24 hours then add a piece of jute twine. Keep it for yourself or give it to someone special!
