Salt Dough Christmas Decorations

These are way fun with the children!

What you will need:

1/2 cup Salt
1 cup Flour
1/2 cup Water

How to make it:

  1. Preheat over to 250 degrees F
  2. Mix together, salt, flour, and water until dough is formed
  3. Knead dough on floured surface until the mixture is elastic and smooth. If dough is too sticky sprinkle with flour, continue to do so until stickiness is gone, DO NOT ass too much flour, this will dry out the dough and will cause it to crack before you get a chance to bake it.
  4. Roll out the dough to about 1/4" thick with a rolling pin which has been dusted with flour.
  5. Use cookie cutters to cut out the shapes you want.
  6. Use a toothpick to make a hole towards the top of the shape for the string to hang the decoration.
  7. Place all shapes onto an ungreased cookie sheet and place into the preheated oven.
  8. Bake for 2 hours.
  9. Remove from over and cool completely.
  10. Paint the decorations, sprinkle with glitter ow whatever you would like.
  11. When paint is dry thread ribbon through the hole and hang on your tree.
