Cool ornaments! You've done quite a large range of things
but so personal to each recipient, they'll definitely be a hit. Love the little fairly grasping her tummy with the wine bottles next to her
and that gate and mini-vines are great.
she needs hair but im at a loss at how to do it, any suggestions??
Now that she's baked, you have fewer easy options.
If you don't mind rebaking, you can add a little liquid clay to the head then create clay hair, and rebake.
Or you could just form the raw clay hair on her head, put her in the freezer a while to firm up the hair and carefully remove it, then bake it separately (perhaps on a cloud of polyester stuffing, stuffed with a bit of tissue, or set into a pile of baking soda or cornstarch, to help support the shape)... then just glue it back on the head (2-part epoxy glue, E-6000, or even permanent white glue in this case since there won't be much stress).
(And there's a way to seat hair like that plug by plug, but you probably don't want to go to that much trouble for this particular figure.)
Or you could just glue various kinds of non-clay hair onto the baked head (see link below -- or even something like a bit of metallic-gold scrubby pad to make Christmas hair, etc.).
(Or you could leave her "abstract" without hair or facial features --nothing wrong with that!)
There are examples of all kinds of hair for clay figures and lessons on how to do them on this page at my site if you want more info and ideas:http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/sculpting_body_and_tools.htm

I noticed you attached her cute wings by wrapping the excess wire around her chest, but you also could have embedded the ends of the wire into her back to hold the wings on. You could even do that after baking if you want... just drill** two holes in her back then glue in the wire-ends (or pack with raw clay and liquid clay and rebake), or you could add more clay to embed the wire into either by baking some clay on the wire then gluing it to the back, or by pressing raw clay and wire onto the baked back with some liquid clay and rebaking. (There's also stuff about various ways to make wings for polymer figures on the page I linked to above, if you're interested... just click on Wings
instead of Hair.)
**Baked polymer clay can be drilled into pretty easily because it's fairly soft when cured (the Sculpey brand may
chip a bit). Just use a regular drill bit (put it in a pin vise as a handle, or make a polymer clay handle for it) and screw away! Or you could use an eye screw instead... remove it after screwing in to leave a kind-of hole. If you reheat the clay briefly, it will soften even more (for drilling into).
I like the bas relief cowboy boot (faux stitching is a great addition!) and hat too, but am concerned that the face guard clay strands of the helmet will break off fairly easily (certainly if you're using Sculpey
). If you worry about that or it happens, you might want to put the whole helmet onto a base sheet of clay (perhaps cut into a square or oval or round shape) to act as a framing element and keep the helmet from breaking; just use a bit of liquid clay between the baked and raw clay to create a good join (and add a hole in the base for the connector) --or you could just glue the backing and helmet together as two pre-baked parts.
