Working with clay takes us back to our grade school days. Not only is clay fun to mold and shape; it’s also forgiving. If you make a mistake while you’re crafting, you can simply roll out the clay and start over. Plus, you can make practically anything out of this delightful medium and the color options are endless. To prove it to you, we’ve gathered some of our favorite Christmas projects that use polymer clay. Check out the crafts below to see just how versatile this medium can be!
Polymer Clay Figures
Go crazy with neon, pastels, or gem tones, or keep it simple with white clay, as the designer did for these Little Standing Snowmen. A dab of paint here, a sequin there, and you’ve given life to a frosty friend without ever stepping outdoors!
Once you’ve mastered the basics of polymer clay crafts, you can move on to more advanced projects like the Polymer Clay Angel.
Polymer Clay Tutorials for the Home
Polymer clay tutorials for home decor are popular among holiday crafters because you can get the entire family involved. We love this adorable Nativity Plate because it’s a perfect project to make with your children. Little ones can help shape and paint the people, stable, and stars. They’ll be amazed when you pull the finished plate out of the oven. What started out as a boring gray plate has been transformed into a bright and shiny Christmas scene.
