Simple and noble: With a few tricks, you can easily make noble 3D Christmas stars and 3D Christmas trees as modelling clay Christmas decoration. They are ideal as table decorations or for the Advent wreath!
Illuminated by candlelight, the branches of a festively decorated fir tree grove cast their shadows. I made the 3D Christmas trees for the first time as a DIY modelling clay Christmas decoration and I’m quite taken with the result. Make sure that you don’t roll out the modelling clay too thinly, otherwise the delicate fir trees could break! Following the same principle as the fir trees, you can also find the instructions for making 3D Christmas stars to stand on your desk here. The inspiration for this DIY idea came, as so often, from the vastness of the internet. 🙂
You can find out more about what you need to know to make this pretty, simple DIY Christmas decoration in the article below. You’ll also find a clear list of all the materials I used in the material list. You can get everything, for example, at amazon*.
Do you still have crown caps, corks, toilet rolls or old wooden clothes pegs around the house? Give them a new life as cute crown cork snowman, cork Christmas ornaments or noble wine cork coasters, sparkling toilet roll stars or clothes peg stars.
The trick is simple: To make the Christmas trees and poinsettias stand upright, insert two of them into each other. The 3D poinsettias are easier to make than the 3D Christmas trees because they stand on a narrow trunk that has to be completely straight so that the tree doesn’t stand crooked or unstable and tip over.
You should allow at least one day for drying (depending on the modelling clay). Impatient people can speed up the drying process by using the oven at a low temperature.
Tip: Use cookie cutters in two different sizes to arrange the stars and trees nicely. The bigger the stars and trees are, the less you have to be careful not to break anything when cutting them.
From 250g modelling clay you get 4 big 3D poinsettias consisting of two stars each out and two small 3D poinsettias.
Use 250g of modelling clay to make 4 large 3D Christmas trees, each consisting of two fir trees. Make sure that your cookie cutter has a wide trunk so that the Christmas tree stands well.
Have fun making your own modelling clay Christmas decorations!
