christmas tree decoration made of salt dough

On Sunday it is first day in Advent and the girls and I are going to a girlfriend of mine to make Christmas decoration, eat Christmas cakes and have fun.
Maybe one of the projects could be salt decoration.

It is very easy to do, here is the guide:
Salt dough recipe:
2 parts flour + 1 part fine salt + some oil + a dash of hot water.
When mixed together, knead the dough until it is smooth and easy to work with.
Make a good deal of dough. Roll out the dough and punch your favorite shapes, we did stars, mushrooms, leaves and hearts. You can choose to use a form or cut out the desired motif with a knife.

Important: If you want to hang them on your tree remember to make a hole in each shape before you put them in the oven. Have in mind that the dough “shrinks” a bit in the oven.

Bake at approx. 150 degrees for 11/2-2 hours
Big things take longer.

When they have cooled of you can start decorate them.Let the paint dry, give them a ribbon and then hang them on your three.
