Salt Dough Ornaments

We made salt dough ornaments!
And you can too!
This was GREAT for a Saturday afternoon activity with the kids.

Here are the ingredients:
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
Mix the flour and salt together in your mixer

Then start by adding 1/2 cup water
Keep mixing until the dough is smooth!
Then roll with a rolling pin until it is about 1/2 inch thick
Then cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters or freehand them if you are really talented!
Then put on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 325 degrees until they are dry
Once cooled let the painting begin!

Here's what my guys created!
The Little Lady's
The Middle Man's
And the Little Man's
I can't wait to string 'em up and hang 'em on the tree!
I am sharing with Saturday Spotlight @
