This is a fun DIY ornament that the kids can get involved with!

----Dough Ornaments----
4 cups of flour
1 cup salt
Large Mixing Bowl
water
rolling pin
drinking straw
cookie sheet
 ribbon
craft paint
elmers glue
glitter
wax paper

 Heat the oven to 200 degrees.
In a mixing bowl blend flour and salt together. Then slowly add in water to form a dough. You do not want it soupy. Just enough water to make a good solid dough.

Pull out a sheet of wax paper and roll your dough out onto it. Create the shape that you want. Kids can help!



*you can also spray a baking sheet with pam and roll it out on there.

Once you have the thick shape that you want. the take a straw and poke through it leaving a hole big enough for your ribbon to go through.

**Make sure your shape is thick enough to leave a good handprint in it.

Place your childs hand on the dough and press down on each finger and palm on the wax paper.

Lift up the wax paper and transfer directly to the oven on a cookie sheet.


* The kids also used cookie cutters with the dough.

Bake until dry...mine took a few hours.

Take out of the oven and make sure it cools off

paint with the craft paint of your choice. I used white

Place elmers glue where the hand is and use your paint brush to brush the hand completely with glue.

Sprinkle glitter over the handprint and then shake off.

add the ribbon of your choice so you can hang it.

This is what you get!


Remember to write your child's name, age and date on the back so you can treasure this forever!

Hang on your tree and enjoy every year.
