What you’ll need:

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
Rolling pin
Cookie sheet
Miniature cookie cutters
Acrylic paints
Glitter glue or glitter paint
Ribbon or string


Preheat the oven to 250° F.

  1. Mix all ingredients together until the dough is formed.
  2. Knead the dough on a floured surface until the mixture is smooth. If dough is too sticky, sprinkle a bit of flour.
  3. Roll out the dough to about 1/4” thick with a rolling pin dusted with flour.
  4. Use cookie cutters to cut out ornaments.
  5. Poke a toothpick into the top of the ornament, then make a circular motion until the hole is the size you want.
  6. Place the ornaments onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 2 hours.
  7. Allow the ornaments to cool completely, then you can paint them. You may even want to add glitter!
  8. When the paint is dry, thread a ribbon or string through the hole to make a loop.
