This is the second year in a row that we’re making homemade ornaments!
It’s so much fun and so easy to do. Mason get’s a kick out of it, especially this year!
The recipe is super easy!
First combine 1 cup of salt, 2 cups of white flour and 1 cup of warm water. Add additional water and flour as necessary so that you can roll the dough into a ball and knead for about 5 minutes without it sticking to your hands!
Roll it out to about an inch thick and cut your ornaments out or make hand prints and foot prints! You’ll have to do this a couple of times!
Make holes were you can string the ornaments up and then place them on a cookie sheet and bake at 200 degrees for about an hour. You may have to do this for longer but keep a close watch on it. If you do it for too long it will start to bubble.
This is what they looked like after about 50 minutes. I watched it slowly. Mine were thick especially the hand print one so I had to cook it a little longer
Leave the ornaments to dry over night and then paint!
After the paint dries you a black sharpie to mark with the name and year of your little!
We made this one for Elena last year when I was pregnant with her so we had only just added her name this year.
I love these ornaments and can’t wait to make then again next year for Baby3!
