Homemade Christmas Ornaments ( Salt, Flour and water)

 Its that Time of the year for us to make our Dough Ornaments , We have been making these for about 5 years .( I will try ad find pictures from previous years)
It's a great way to change up your look year to year and a great way to get the kiddo's involved  but the biggest bonus is it  saves alot of money :)

It's super Easy to do 

How to make salt dough ornaments 
you will need

  • 4 cups of flour
  • 1  1/2  Cups warm water 
  • 1 cup salt 
  • rolling pin
  • cookie cutters
  • cookie sheets
  • Wire Hangers ( Found mine at the dollar store )

I like to dissolve the salt in the warm water for just a min , then add the flour and knead for about 15 mins ( it helps to get hands a little damp if it needed) 

Rub some flour on the surface you plan to roll it out on to help it from sticking .

roll it out about 1/4"  

Cut out the shapes you want , you can also use a knife to cut shapes if you don't have cutters ( the owl and small start are from the boys play dough stash

Make sure to Poke a hole in where you want the hanger to go ( I use a ink pen

I got about 35 out of this batch 

Pre-Heat Oven to 250 and cook for about 30 mins 
I let them sit for about 3 hours to cool before painting 
( You can also let them air dry but this can take upto 3 days )

Now for the FUN! part Create!

Hmmm...... I actually took his paint and rubbed it all over his face! ( oh my Correction! I meant HE not I, I would NOT do that lol )

it's so much fun! I just love it
