Gold Gift Tags or Ornaments

The holidays are all about adding that special touch and letting the ones you care about know how much you care for them.  These gift tag embellishments that can be used as ornaments will help jazz up any card or gift.

2 - gold spray paint and air drying clay

I started with some gold spray paint and air dry clay.  You’ll also need some ribbon.

3 - rolling clay

4 - using play dough tools

I started rolling out my clay but it was hard keeping it smooth and achieving the thin roll I had envisioned.  There had to be an easier way!  So I borrowed my toddler’s play dough tool.

5 - spelling out words and making shapes

6 - spray painting ornaments gold

Then I shaped my strands into words like “joy” and “noel” and created some fun holiday shapes like a star and candy cane.  I let them dry overnight then flipped them over so the other side could dry equally well.

Clay Ornaments with Gold Spray Paint

They received a coat of gold spray paint on both sides.  After drying, I tied some red ribbon to each embellishment.  Here they are on a gift bag and a mini tree.
