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.


  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.

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.
