Here's how to create a Dollar Tree Gingerbread Ornament:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas Crafts Clay Pot Gingerbread ornament, gather all supplies. Remove the packaging and labels from the materials. Separate the mini white pom poms from the rest of the colors in the package and set aside.
Basecoat the entire 2.5” clay pot with Light Cinnamon acrylic craft paint. Let the paint dry and then apply a second coat, if necessary. I love using Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have excellent one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Attach two wiggle eyes to the gingerbread person with a glue gun and glue sticks. Add polka dot cheeks to the gingerbread person’s face by dipping a new pencil eraser into Bubblegum Pink acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry. Draw a squiggle line around the rim of the clay pot with white dimensional paint. Attach the mini white pom poms to the rim of the clay pot using the dimensional paint as adhesive. Set aside to dry. TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you would have to wait for it to dry.
Add a squiggle line around the top of the Gingerbread person with white dimensional paint. Draw a smile from cheek to cheek with the MONO Twin permanent black marker, my favorite. I love that the dimensional fabric paint looks like the icing on a gingerbread cookie.
Cut a 12” length of natural jute twine, tie it in a loop with a knot, and attach it to the top of the clay pot Gingerbread person with a glue gun and glue sticks. Tie red and white gingham ribbon into a bow and glue it to the top of the clay pot. Every time I see the colored gingham ribbon at Dollar Tree, I buy it in all the colors!
