Diva Playing: Salt Dough Ornament Recipe….

Each year after Thanksgiving I’d take a weekend and invite in the neighbor children and let them have an ornament party.  The dough below is the basic recipe for all that fun.  Each child got to make 3 or 4 and decorate them.  They got snacks while we clean us and waited for the ornaments to bake.  I think I enjoyed it as much as they did.  I even did it with the adults several times and they liked it too.  Great treasures to keep.  

Salt Ornament Dough
4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Cup Salt
1 1/2 Cups Water
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Combine the flour, salt and water; mix well and knead for 10 minutes. Roll out on a lightly floured surface.
  3. Cut into desired shapes and make holes for hanging. You may want to poke the backs with toothpicks a little to keep from puffing. Bake for 30 minutes; allow to cool.
  4. Decorate with poster paints or tube paints. Allow to dry and spray with clear polyurethane on both sides to preserve. Use ribbon or yarn pieces to hang.
