White Clay Decorations

At home my Christmas tree has a white(ish) theme to it. Each year I buy a couple of new decorations to add. This year I fell in love with these beautiful white clay decorations. They are simple stunning when set against the green of the tree. Apparently these sort of decorations originate in Sweden. And because they are so pretty I thought I would try to recreate these white clay decorations with my charges. Plus YC loves to make anything when it involves some sort of dough.

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

To make these white clay decorations you will need:

  • 1 cup bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ cup corn flour
  • ¾ cup of warm water
  • Saucepan
  • Rolling pin
  • Cookie cutters
  • String

Start by mixing the ingredients together in a saucepan over a low heat. Keep stirring until it looks like mash potato. It may take some time and look really watery, but it will suddenly come together.

Carefully take it out and kneed it into a dough. Do be careful as it will be hot. This is not as step for little hands.

Once it has cooled, it is time to start rolling it out and making it into shapes. You don’t want to roll it too thinly. Make sure you make a hole at the top for the string to go through.

When you are ready transfer it to a tray lined with baking parchment and place in the oven on 100c for 30 minutes. I turned mine over half way through the drying process.

This really are a simple decoration to make.  Plus they don’t leave your hands feeling dry like salt dough can. YC was determined to make sure that she used every last piece of dough up. BB just enjoyed the rolling and cutting out. YC made sure that he did actually make a couple of useable decorations, which was very sweet.
