Note: One batch of homemade clay will make about a dozen or dozen and a half of these ornaments.

Get the recipe for Homemade Air-Dry Clay (only 3 ingredients!). Or purchase clay from any of your craft stores or big box stores.

Step One: Roll out a small amount of your homemade clay into as close of a square as possible and about 1/4-1/2 inch thick.

Tip: work with a small amount of the homemade clay recipe at a time to ensure the clay doesn’t dry out.

Step 2: Use a sharp knife to cut the clay into the house shapes. You can either free hand this, if you feel confident, or make yourself a simple paper template to follow.

Create as many of them as you can on the square of clay you rolled out.

Step 3: Carefully scoop them up and set them aside to dry. Combine the leftover bits of clay to roll out and make as. many additional houses as you like.
