Homemade Tree Decorations

Here at Unpackaged we have been prepping for Christmas by making some lovely, inexpensive salt dough christmas ornaments, fun for all the family and a great way to cut down on packaging! Here is our recipe:

450g plain flour
225g table salt
200ml water

  1. Combine all the ingredients to form a dough.
  2. Roll out till about 1/2 cm thick; use any christmas cookie cutter to cut the shapes (if you don’t have any, create a cardboard template).
  3. Punch a small hole for hanging (use a straw).
  4. Bake at 170c for 30minutes
  5. Decorate with paint, glitter, pens and stamps. Then tie some ribbon through the hole and hang them up! Remember, do not eat!
