To make a Clay Christmas stocking you need to slice a slab from a block of wedged clay using a wire and two rulers. After you slice the slab trace the shape using a needle and a template. If you want you can add the child's name using stamps. Add decorative stamping. Using a clay extruder, squirt out a clay rope to accent the opening of the stocking. Glue down with slip. Punch out two holes with a straw for hanging. Now you are almost done with your Clay Christmas stocking. You can vary the process using your own imagination.
