Christmas wreath made from eucalyptus leaves with clay star decorations


Air-dry clay is a top contender when it comes to Christmas craft supplies. One of the many ways you can use this versatile material is to create star ornaments. Hang them individually on your tree, or replicate our D.I.Y. project by threading jute twine through the centre to create a customisable garland.


1Create clay stars

Roll out the clay to about 5mm thickness. Use the cookie cutter to cut out star shapes. Use the pencil to poke a hole in the middle of each star.

2Dry, then apply sealer

Allow the stars to dry, then coat in sealer and let them dry again.

3Attach stars to twine

Cut the desired length of twine and thread it through the stars, knotting to secure.
