Homemade Ornament Dough!

I'm a big fan of Christmas ornaments and of homemade gifts!

So here is a gift from the kitchen for you!!!

I have tried different recipes and I like this salt dough recipe best... but when in need this non-salt dough recipe works also!

Salt Dough

4 cups flour

1 cup salt

1 1/2 cups water

mix all together and knead well until the dough is smooth.

Roll out and cut with cookie cutters

Make a hole with a straw or a skewer

Bake at 300 degrees for about 30 minutes.

Non Salt Dough

1/2 cup cornstarch

1 cup baking soda

3/4 cup water

Mix all together in a pot on medium heat until all comes together...

Turn out on board and let cool... knead into a dough.

Roll out and cut with cookie cutters.

Make a hole with a straw or a skewer

Bake at 175 degrees for about 1 hour.

When done and fully dry...paint with tempera or acrylic paints. Let dry. Spray with clear sealant, or paint with modge podge or even last resort paint with elmers glue. Let fully dry. String with a ribbon and hang on your tree!

I hope you have fun making ornaments either for yourself or for gifts!
