Ornament Dough

Recipe by FarahC

A dough to make xmas ornaments or your child's hand print.*Update since I posted last* Its been a while since I made this dough, and a member reminded me that yes you will need more than 1/3 cup water,simply add enough water to mixture to form a moist biscuit type dough to work with.

Made these for my pets Christmas 2015. I followed the directions exactly. Super easy and they appear they'll be easy to paint too. Next time, I'll press some glitter into the dough before I bake them.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup flour
  • 13 cup water
  • 12 cup salt
  • 2 -3 drops food coloring (optional)
  • glitter (optional)


  1. Slowly add water to flour. Mix in salt and optional ingredients.
  2. Knead with hands about 3 minutes.
  3. Roll out dough 1/2 to 1 inch thick depending on your craft project in mind.
  4. Cut out whatever shapes you want. Bake 300°F for 25 minutes on each side, or until hardened. Be sure to punch a tiny hole at the top of ornament before baking.
  5. When time is up, let cool at room temperature, then decorate with paints, glitters, etc.
