Christmas tree decos and garlands
(Toowoomba Queensland Australia)
Two holes for the garland, one for tree decos.
My nearly 5 y.o. granddaughter was here for a day and I thought we might make Christmas gifts for her cousins and a garland for myself.
The recipe we used had less flour than salt, and the salt was quite coarse.
I rolled the dough out, and helped her cut Christmas decoration shapes close to each other to maximize the space.
In the end she had enough and I worked hard to finish cutting before it dried out. At one stage I sprayed the dough to hydrate it a little.
Some of my shapes were obviously drier than others, so I baked them (about 60 C) for at least 3 hours.
I'm happy with the result.
The recipe included spices hence the brown color.
Today I'm researching more about salt dough, and am pleased to find your site. I hadn't intended painting them, but think that will be a good idea.
I put essential oils on one shape today to see if it would carry the smell or soften the shape. So far so good 😊
