HI GUYS- hope your Thanksgiving was yummy and wonderful. MINE SURE WAS, I PIGGED OUT. Now that Turkey day is out of the way, I am finishing up some holiday decorating. Like my front door. The hubs will soon be putting up the lights outside. Today I wanted to do something special with my kids. So I decided to make Baked Christmas Ornaments. I JUST LOVE HOW THEY TURNED OUT. Best part is the memories. My older son said after we decorated them... "This is the best day in November Yet!" totally made the day even better... LOVED IT!
Directions/ Ingredients for the ornaments!
Mix together 2 cups of Flour, 1 cup of salt, 2 tbsp. Vegetable Oil. Then slowly add 3/4-1 cup of water and stir until you get a nice clay.
Add a little flour as you knead the dough. You want it sticky but not to sticky.
Flour your surface and rolling pin. Roll out dough to about 3/4 of an inch, you don't want it to thick it will crack while baking. Cut out shapes and place on un-greased cookie sheet. Use a kabob skewer (that is what I used) or a tooth pick to create wholes in the ornaments.
Bake at 250 for 1 hr. 40 min. Let cool.
THEN thread ribbon of your choice through the wholes and decorate. My kids and I decorated ours with Glitter Glue in Red, Gold, and White. Simple but lovely.
THANKS SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY!
