Ornamen-tastic!

Day Three of the 25 days, and only a whole freak-load more to go!

Today's advent activity was to make salt-dough ornaments.
It went a little something like this:



Wanna play along???  Here you go.

Salt-Dough Ornament Recipe
(a compilation of many recipes found on the great wide interweb)

2c. Flour
1c. Salt
1c. Water

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl.  When the dough begins to stiffen, kneed until smooth and moist but not sticky (add additional flour if the dough sticks to hands). Turn out onto floured work surface and roll to 1/4" thickness.  Use holiday cookie cutters to shape dough ornaments and embellish using a toothpick. Using a straw, punch out a hole at the top of each shape for stringing.  Place ornaments on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for an hour and a half or until firm and dry, but not yet browned. Allow to cool completely before coloring or painting.  String with ribbon, hang and ENJOY!
