Mom Always Finds Out received free Crayola products for my consideration. All opinions expressed are my own.
My kids love to do Christmas crafts. We usually do at least one ornament craft every year, and this year we tried something new. Crayola Model Magic. This cool clay doesn’t need to be baked in an oven to harden. Simply let it air dry until firm, about 24-36 hours. We used our Model Magic clay along with Christmas-shaped cookie cutters to make tree ornaments. It was easy and fun.
We added some glittery sparkle to our ornaments using Crayola’s Super Sparkle Washable Glitter Glue. Five fun colors help our ornaments twinkle on the tree!
How To Make No-Bake Christmas Tree Ornaments
- Crayola Model Magic clay (various colors)
- Cookie Cutters (we used Candy Cane, Ball Ornament, Snowflake and Star shapes)
- Crayola Glitter Glue
- Glitter Pipe Cleaners
- Drinking Straw
- Use a rolling pin or similar (hands will work, too!) to flatten clay to about 1/4 inch thickness.
- Press a cookie cutter into the clay to form shapes. Remove excess clay from around the shape.
- Use one end of a drinking straw to punch a hole near the top of your ornament. This will be where your ornament hanger (pipe cleaner) will go once the clay has hardened.
- Place the ornaments on a flat surface. Allow to dry to a firm resiliency. This takes about 24-36 hours.
- Use Crayola glitter glue to draw designs onto ornaments. Allow to dry for 30 minutes or until glue is completely dry.
- Stick one end of a pipe cleaner through the hole and gently twist to form a loop. Use the pipe cleaner to hang ornament on the tree.
Tip: You can also use Crayola Markers and paint to decorate the clay once it is dry.
