Adding a personal touch to your Christmas tree is fun and simple with these DIY clay ornaments that can be made in a cinch. Store-bought ornaments are beautiful, but creating your own with friends and family will help put you in the holiday spirit while making some seriously cost-effective creations.

The minimal tools you'll need include a rolling pin, some modelling clay, twine, your favorite cookie cutter shapes and a variety of paints and markers. Roll the modelling clay out flat and cut it with your cookie cutters; punch a small hole at the top for looping the twine through. Paint and decorate to your heart's desire, then allow to dry; some clays might require a quick bake in the oven to harden. Slide some twine through the top and hang on your Christmas tree or give to friends for the perfect present. Stats for Monochrome Christmas Ornaments Trending: Older & Buzzing
