Christmas in the air......

How to make some fun Christmas ornaments that look like cookies!


you want to find some fun cookie cutters that you like.

You will need flour and salt, eye screws glue and paint. I had some left over sea salt....you don't did it you can just use normal salt. 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, 1cup warm water.
put salt and flour together, slowly add the water. you will need to knead it for about 8min on a flat floured surface.

Roll it out about 1/4 to 3/8 -inch thick.

and start cutting


I just got some hooks and eyes from the hardware store.



put them in the top of each cut out.


now I would leave them out over night to dry......or you can put then in the oven at 200 (or less) for about 4 to 6 hours. let them cool.

after that, I like to take glue and paint and mix them together. put it in a squeeze bottle and make it look like frosting. (let dry!)

Then I took paint and made lines and designs

have fun!!!
