At Christmas, there are those who love the traditional red and gold decorations, pine cones and fir trees ... and then there are those who opt for a more sober and contemporary style. They will undoubtedly love these small decorations to hang! Light and modern, they are adorned with a marbled pattern and can be ad infinitum according to your cookie cutters and your desires. Made of polymer clay, they work like plasticine and are an ideal holiday activity for children.

Equipment

- A rolling pin - White and black polymer clay (Fimo type) - Cookie cutters - Fine twine - Baking paper - An oven

Budget: less than 15 euros Duration: 30 minutes + 30 minutes of cooking

Steps

1. Start by creating your marble effect material: knead the white polymer clay to soften it and roll it between your hands. Add a few pieces of black dough and roll everything into a "sausage". Twist it in your hands to twist it and create mottling.

2. Roll out the dough obtained with a roller to a thickness of 4 millimeters.

3. Using your cookie cutters, cut out the desired shapes. Here we chose geometric shapes to accentuate the graphic effect, but small marbled firs would also be the most beautiful effect! You can even create your own shapes by cutting out the dough with a sharp knife.

4. Repeat the operation as many times as necessary and as long as you have polymer clay. You can reuse the scraps by incorporating them again in white paste. Vary the amount of color to obtain different patterns, more or less fine mottling and more or less charged effects.

5. With a sharp tool, make a small hole in your decorations. They will be used to pass the string to suspend them. You can use a knife, a compass or even a fine straw, just be careful not to make the hole too close to the edge and not to distort your subjects.

6. Bake the decorations in the oven at 110 ° C (thermostat 3) for about 30 minutes. Let cool, the shapes will harden as they cool. Then pass the string through the hole and tie a knot.

Finally

And now, your marbled decorations are ready to be hung, in the tree for a classic version, on a mobile or in a green plant for a more contemporary version! Did you like this tutorial? Send us photos of your achievements via our Facebook page, and find other ideas on our Pinterest!
