Clay Hearts for Valentines Day

I haven't worked with clay for years but thought it would be a fun to play with, especially since Brody has been so into playdough lately.  These clay hearts are perfect to use as a gift tags or hang them for a fun Valentines decoration.

Make sure to follow cooking or drying instructions on the clay package. We used air-dry clay so it took about 2 days for our hearts to dry.

Step 1. roll out clay on a flat even surface
Step 2. use a cookie cutter to cut a heart shape
3. we used a toothpick to place a small hole near the top of the heart so we can hang our hearts
4. leave the heart plain or use a rubber stamp to add texture
5. once the hearts are dry you can sand the edges or leave as is
6.  for added color paint the hearts
