Place a piece of plastic wrap over the clay, and then use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut hearts from the clay. The plastic wrap will give your hearts a rounded edge.

Remove the heart shapes from the excess clay and place them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Punch a hole in the top of each heart with a small, round cutter. If desired, you can also use letter stamps to stamp initials or names in each heart ornament.

Finally, bake the ornaments at 265 F for about 30 minutes. Once they’re cool, tie a string through the hole at the top of each heart.

You can tie the ends of the string together to create a hanging ornament, or leave the ends of the string loose to tie these around napkins, wine glass stems, or gifts.
