Step 1:
Mix the flour and salt together and mix it so the salt is distributed evenly.

Step 3:
Take a small chunk of dough and roll it out. Use additional flour to keep it from sticking to your table or parchment paper.

Step 4:
Press the cookie cutters into your dough and cut out the shapes. Do as many as you can on the sheet of dough you just rolled out. Then use your straw to cut a hole to hang your ornaments with.

Step 5:
Peel the extra dough off around the ornaments and place the ornaments on a cookie sheet or something flat to dry. Repeat as many times as you want to create more ornaments!

Step 6:
The longest part! You have to wait for it to dry. Mines took me over a week since it was really humid. Drying time also depends on how thick you rolled your dough out too. You can ask an adult to bake them on the lowest setting in the oven until it dries out as well.

Step 7:
When it’s dry, you can go ahead and decorate it any way you want!

Step 8:
After your paint/glue/decorations are dry, you can cover the ornament with a layer of Mod Podge to keep them protected.

Step 9:
Tie a string or ribbon to your ornaments and you’re done!
