I love the sights, the sounds and even the smells of the holidays. Evergreen trees? Sugar cookies? Mulling cider? I love them all! They’re also perfect inspiration for a little crafting for the season. I’m making snowman sugar cookie ornaments out of polymer clay. I struggle to make real cookies. Clay cookies? Those I can handle. It’s also a totally kid-friendly craft, so make sure you get the little ones to help.
Frosting with Love™ is one of the new Limited Edition Holiday Fragrances from the makers of Glade®. With hints of vanilla, sugar and icing, it was the perfect inspiration for making sugar cookie ornaments.
I also enjoy other limited edition scents like Tree Lighting Wonder™, Cozy Cider Sipping™ and Candy Sprinkling Joy™! Tree Lighting Wonder™ is perfect if you had to reluctantly opt for an artificial tree like me. I always miss the scent of a fresh cut tree.
Although I have played around with polymer clay here and there, I still consider myself a novice. Even if you’re brand new to polymer clay you can make a snowman ornament. I promise. Mix up a little gold and white clay until you get the color of sugar cookie dough. Mix it together in your hands until the colors are fully blended.
Roll out your clay and cut out two circles and a rectangle.
Carefully place your pieces together to form the snowman shape. It’s OK if you get a few dents or fingerprints in your clay since you’re going for a cookie dough look. Once you’ve shaped your snowman into a shape you’re happy with, bake it according to the directions on your clay package.
Now it’s time to paint! The key to making your snowman look like a sugar cookie is leaving a little edge of “dough” around the sides of your cookie.
Once your paint is dry, brush on a good layer of triple thick gloss finish. This will give it that shiny royal frosting look.
Add a string through the hole in the hat and your ornament is ready to hang on your tree!
And your Limited Edition Holiday Fragrances from the makers of Glade® are ready to inspire you all season long!
