DIY Outer Space Planet Ornaments for Christmas

Christmas is right around the corner.  Most likely your tree and home are already completely decorated.  My deepest apologies, friend, but I'm throwing a wrench in your plans. (Muah ha ha ha!)   Here's one last STEM inspired Christmas Craft that you'll want to try out this year.   If you love space, you'll love making these Outer Space Planet Ornaments.   (They're out of this world!)

Awhile back I made these galaxy space beads  out of Sculpey Clay.  You can read the whole post,  but I'll also just summarize it here.

  • I took various colored Sculpey Clay pieces and mixed them together and rolled them into spheres. 
  • Then, I took a skewer and pierced them through. 
  • Then, I baked them according to the package's directions.


I loved the necklace so much... but honestly I haven't had a chance to wear it.  (My youngest is currently in a grabby-mouthy stage.  He's in the throws of teething and it's pretty tough.)

So I cut apart the necklace (sob), but then transformed the beads into ornaments using some pretty silver string.

I totally dig them!
And I also love how all the planets are hiding in plain sight on our tree.
