Christmas crafts..

Christmas is a big deal in our home , we love to craft and bake in this time of year and we love making a lot of good memories. Christmas decorations are on through out the house and you can smell ginger and cinnamon everywhere.. Love it:-)
I would like to share  our yesterday's crafts with you, we made Christmas ornaments out of ice pops sticks. We painted them and glittered  them. Kids loved it.  We also made salt dough ornaments a couple of days ago. I will share the recipe with you below.

Salt dough recipe:
1/2 cup salt( I like to use a little bit more salt)
1 cup plain flour
2 tsp cream of  tartar
1/2 cup water.
Put all ingridients In a large bowl and make your dough.. Roll out and cut out your ornaments with cookie cutters. Don't forget to make a hole for the string . Use the back of a painting brush and poke the top of the ornament. Bake in the oven on 180 degrees C for about 20 minutes.
Take the ornaments out and let them cool down for a couple of hours or until the next day. Then you can paint them with acrylic paint and glitter.
Now some people say you have to put them in the over on low heat so they don't urn brown and burn for  3 hours, but I didn't have that kind of patience so I did mine in 20 minutes on medium and they turned out ok, just keep an eye on them.
