I’m a crafty person and a lot of what I attempt with my 4-year-old is more work than it’s worth. Not so with these ornaments! These couldn’t be easier to make and if you want a homemade present for family & friends, this is a great idea.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
Combine until sticky, then knead until a ball. You can add more flour or water depending on what consistency of dough you’d like.
We used a metal straw to punch a hole in the top of each ornament for hanging.
Roll it out to about 1/4″ thick, I used parchment paper under & over it. Then cut with cookie cutters & put on baking sheet with parchment paper or Silplat.
Bake at 250 F for 2-3 hours. Mine were done at just over 2 hours. They will puff up a bit.
Let them cool, and then they’re ready for decorating. We did that part the following day.
I’ve read that if you really want them to last, you need to seal them but we didn’t bother.
My son loved making these & we will give them as gifts to loved ones. Merry merry!
