Salt dough ornaments

For this project I used:

4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup salt
Cookie sheet
Large mixing bowl
Rolling pin
Cookie cutter/glass
Ink pad

Preheat oven to 200. Mix flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add water and mix slowly until dough is the consistency of pizza dough. Knead for about 10 minutes and roll out to desired thickness (I should have made mine thinner). Use glass/cookie cutter to cut out desired shape. Stamp image onto ornament. Use straw to create a hole for the hanger/ribbon. Coat the cookie sheet with oil (a little goes a long way). Bake ornaments for at least 1 hour. May take up to 3 hours for thicker ornaments. Take off cookie sheet to cool. May place on paper towels to absorb any extra oil. Mine turned out great on top but very soft on bottom because I left them on the cookie sheet all night.
