Handmade clay Christmas decorations

by Mars

Kirsten has spent December transforming Home Farm into a Christmas wonderland with beautifully decorated garlands, wreaths and two Christmas trees. She even got around to making handmade clay Christmas decorations, which were inspired by Nordic vibes.

These beautiful handmade and hand painted decorations adorn Home Farm this year, and the short (1 minute) video below with festive music shows Kirsten making and painting the decorations.

They are lovely! Is it a special clay mixture which needs baking? And are the decorative stamps you used specifically for clay? So pretty. 😃

Thank you Cathy. I’ll let Kirsten know.

The clay didn’t need to be baked, and the decorations were all air dried. As for the stamps, they are vintage wooden stamps she’s collected over the years.

We’ve had a few enquiries about the decorations and I’m trying convince Kirsten to start selling them, so your positive comments will help me further my case.

Gorgeous decorations, and so worth the effort! I’m presuming that these are air cured clay. Beautifully decorated 👍❤️

Thank you Luffy. I’ll let Kirsten know. They were air dried, and I think they came out really nice.

All the best to you and your family, and hope the building work is going well.

Those are gorgeous! That’s a very durable clay. Was it home made, too? The recipe I tried this year turned out to be incredibly fragile.

Thank you. Kirsten purchased the clay on Amazon, and it’s actually quite strong.
