Category: Holiday, Christmas

 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Flour
  • 1 c Salt
  • 1 c Water


Mix salt and flour. Slowly add water, mixing as you add it. Towards the end
you will have to put dough on a work counter or on a lightly oiled surface
and knead well until dough is smooth. This dough can be used to make long
lasting ornaments and decorations. Bake at 325 degrees F for about 1 1/2
hours until dry. After they have completely cooled, you can paint them with
acrylic paints and tie ribbons around them. If you want to hang them up
make sure that you make holes to hang them before baking.

For a smooth, white porcelain like dough, mix 1 cup cornstarch and 2 cups
baking soda in a saucepan. Add 1 1/3 cups of cold water and stir until
smooth. Heat slowly stirring constantly until mixture begins to thicken.
Turn mixture out on a plate, cover and let cool. knead until smooth. Dust
bread board with cornstarch and roll out dough.Add more cornstarch to
prevent sticking. Cut out ornaments(remember to make holes for hanging!)
and place on wire racks to air dry for a few days. After drying you can
paint the ornaments and hang on your tree or use as package tie ons.

You can use cookie cutters for making the decorations. Use the bigger
cutters that don't have small areas for the dough to stick in and can't get
it out.

Use these doughs for making decorations for any holiday as well as
