- Follow the instructions on the pack of clay, and roll out. Cut out stars, trees and heart shapes using the cutters.
- Use the end of the drinking straw to create a hole at the top of your shape . If you don’t have a straw to hand, you can use a knife. Leave to dry.
- Once dry, cut a length of ribbon or metallic thread to your desired hanging length and attach through the hole of the decoration.
