My sweet friend Kristy @creepingfigcottage (on Instagram) made these homemade ornaments and when I saw them I gasped! They were simple yet beautiful. So with her permission I asked if I could put her recipe on my blog for all of you.
If you have been following along on my Instagram then you probably know that I have talked about having a simple Christmas and these ornaments are simply perfect. Don’t you agree? 😍
So if you are looking for a fun and inexpensive holiday activity for the family then this is it my friends! I literally had everything on hand which means I spent zero dollars! 😱
1 cup of baking soda
1/2 cup of cornstarch
3/4 cup of water
Step 1: Add all the ingredients to a medium sized sauce pan and turn the burner to medium heat.
Step 2: Stir for a few minutes until you have a mashed potato like consistency. It took mine about 4 minutes to thicken.
Step 3: Pour the mix into a mixing bowl and cover with Sarah wrap or aluminum foil. Allow the mixture to cool completely. It took mine about 15-20 minutes to coo
Step 4: sprinkle some cornstarch on a cutting board and on the rolling pin you plan to use, then roll out the mix.
Tip: I sprinkled a little cornstarch on top of the mix as well because the dough was a little sticky.
Step 5: Cut out the ornaments using cookie cutters of your choice. I used a few different types. Then puncture a hole near the top. I used a shish kabob, like Kristy has suggested.
Step 6: Lay the ornaments on a cookie sheet and bake them for 1 hour at 175 degrees. Allow the ornaments to cool then use string or baking twine to hang.
That’s it! Definitely a simple and fun activity for the family.
I hope you enjoyed this post! A big thank you to Kristy @creepingfigcottage for sharing her recipe so I could share it with all of you.
Until next time. Xo
