Making Your Key Ornament

  1. Buy a pack of sculpting clay from any craft store and roll it out into a circle, or any shape you would like! Just make sure that it’s big enough to fit the length and width of your key.
  2. Press your key firmly into the clay to leave an impression and don’t forget to make a hole in the top to hang your string or ribbon through!
  3. Bake according to the clay instructions and once cool, you can paint the date, address or whatever you would like onto it and then hang it from your tree!
