Baking Soda Clay Ornaments

This is the recipe we used to make as kids.  It includes Baking Soda, Corn Starch, and Water.  You can see the complete recipe here:


Recipe:

2 cups or a 16oz box of Baking Soda
1 cup of Corn Starch
1 1/4 cup of water.

Stir over medium heat until it thickens.  



Ingredients


Pouring everything in.  


Stirring.


What it will look like once you take it out of the pan.  They still should be a little moist and with a consistency of mashed potatoes.  After it cools, knead it for a bit.... then it will be more like a dough.  Be sure not to cook them to long as the dough will get dried out.  


My oldest wanted to color ours.  Here she is adding green food coloring.  


The invitation:

Beads
Cookie Cutters
Clay
Rolling Pin


Adding the beads to the shapes.

Poke a hole in the top if you plan on using them as ornaments.

You can either let these air dry or to speed up the process.... heat your oven up to 350, shut it off, and then place them in to dry. 


This is what they look like out of the oven.  

We decided to use beads but you can also paint them after they dry.  

We plan on putting a coat of modge podge on to seal them.

  3. how long does it take for them to dry (to where you could paint them) if you put them in the oven? I'd considered doing salt dough ornaments for an upcoming craft night, but those always say bake for 2 hours-- if this is faster that'd be perfect!

  5. These are so cute! I order some baker's twine earlier this week so I could make cinnamon ornaments. I don't know how much my daughter will help, but it'll be fun!

  6. Can you do it without cooking the dough? I would love to do this, but we don't have a stove I can use at school. Hoping I don't have to make the dough at home . . .

    Thanks!

  8. Loved these! We stamped them with clean rubber stamps and then painted with watercolors once dry. PS use a straw to punch out a hole for hanging.
