Set out the air-dry clay and Christmas cookie molds you want to use.
Break off a sizable piece of clay, and press it into the mold. Make sure to tamp down on the clay so it fills all the crannies for a detailed ornament. Trim off any lumps of clay on the back of the ornament to create a flat surface.
Carefully remove the mold from the clay.
Trim excess clay from around the molded shape using a knife.
Before the clay dries, use a needle to poke a hole through the top of the ornament that is big enough to thread ribbon or string through.
Place the ornament on a tray, and wait for it to dry.
Thread a piece of ribbon through the hole and knot the two ends together.
