Clay Tags

3 Materials
2 Hours

These tags are so versatile and fun to create. Oh, and so easy!!

I made a bunch of them but only used two in this display. I think they are pretty on my glass bottles.

I used this model magic from crayons because I’ve been anxious to try it out. You could also use modeling clay or home made salt dough.

I started by rolling the clay out to about a quarter inch thickness.

I used a cap to push in and twist to form my circles. You could use cookie cutters or a knife to make your shape.

So now you have what looks like a batch of biscuits. Lol.

I found some leaves and flowers from my yard that would make a pretty design when pressed.

I added a design around the edge of some of them by pressing a marker cap in around the edge.

Once they dried. (Which actually took a couple of days so be patient) I painted them a brownish color.

Once the brown dried I lightly brushed white on them.

I strung some of them like a garland.

I really like them on the bottles. It’s like jewelry. You could use these like ornaments or on a keychain, necklace….

    I like this project. How did the flower pressing come out? I see the leaves but not the finished flower. This looks like something I can do with my grandkids when they visit.

    Thank you for sharing. 🍃🌿 ☀️

    Wondering if the Daisy one worked, I didn’t see it in the finished tags?

    My daughter did something like this in school. But they added cinnimin to the clay to give it a nice smell when you hang them next to the lights from a christmas tree. I wonder if you used oil to make them smell good, would it work?
