fimo® soft christmas ball ornament

Christmas is the celebration to beat all celebrations. Make these FIMO® Soft Christmas baubles and decorate your Christmas tree this year.
Step 1

Shape kitchen foil into an even ball and compress it with circular hand movements.

Step 2

Cut off four portions of Pacific Blue soft clay with your straight blade. Knead the clay with your hands until moldable, then roll it into a sheet about 0.19" [0.5 cm] thick using an acrylic roller.

Step 3

Cover the foil ball with the clay sheet and use the modeling tool to smooth the seams.

Step 4

Cut off one portion of peach effect clay with your straight blade. Knead with your hands until moldable, then roll it into a sheet about  0.39" [1cm] thick using an acrylic roller. Place a layer of Gold flakes on the sheet, roll over it carefully with the acrylic roller.

Step 5

Cut out various letters, such as "HO", with cutters. Pick up the letters with your blade, place them on the ball and press down gently.

Step 6

Make a little crown from the rest of the peach clay and add to the top. Push an ornament hanger into the crown.

Step 7

Place your bauble on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and harden in the oven for 30 minutes at 230°F [110°C].
