I put this under breads because I had to choose a category for this recipe for it to post. They are not edible once done so please don't eat them!!! These are fun to make with your kids too.
Just "make, bake and decorate".

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

2 Hr

Ingredients

1 c
salt
2 c
flour
1 c
water
2 Tbsp
vegetable oil
water based paints

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place dry ingredients into a bowl, add the water and oil, then stir till blended.
2
Once the dough holds together make it into a ball and knead it with your hands to make a smooth texture.
3
Place the dough on a cutting board and using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into a pancake shape. Role it out a bit thicker than you would for regular cut out cookies.
4
Using cookie cutters, your fingers or a knife if you're skilled enough cut out the shapes you want.
5
Punch or carve out a hole into the top of the ornament so you can put a thread or metal hanger through it to hang on the tree or where ever you feel like putting it.
6
Bake at 250'F for 1-2 hours.
7
Once cooled paint with the water based paints. I'd use acrylic paint on these. You can also use clear glue and use glitter as well.
8
Thread a string, ribbon or metal hook through the hole and hang on your place of choice. These are reusable..
Have fun!
