Halloween Clay Decorations

We started these Halloween clay decorations way ahead of the game this year!  YC wanted to play with some clay with her cousin during the summer, so of course we got it out.  While we were modelling it, mine some how became a pumpkin.  Which then started us down the slippery slope into Halloween.  Before long, we were all making candy corn, Jack Skeleton heads, ghosts etc.  Not going to complain, it was such a wonderful way to spend a slightly gloomy Monday morning.

Make sure you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own Halloween clay decorations you will need:

  • Clay
  • Clay tools
  • Tray
  • Parchment paper (optional)
  • Paintbrushes
  • Acrylic paint
  • Some glass of water
  • Something to protect your surfaces

Mould your clay into your desired shapes.  We kept making something, and then thinking of something else that would be good to make.  I think we spent close to 2 hours doing it!  Keep a small dish of water nearby, so that you can use it to soften the clay if it hardens, or to smooth over any mistakes.

When we had finally finished, we put all of ours on a parchment lined tray and left them to dry.  The clay instructions did say we could put them in the oven, but our oven doesn’t reach 1000c! We left ours to dry for a few days before we painted them.
