Fall Salt Dough Ornaments

We made these fun fall salt dough ornament decorations.  I remember making these in elementary school.  I thought I'd try with the kids.  The first thing you need to do is make the salt dough.
1/2 cup salt
1 cup flour
1/2 cup water
Mix together and knead.  (You will have to help the children knead).

Roll dough into 1/4" thickness.

Use cookie cutters to make shapes.
Punch a little hole so the ornament can hold a string.
Bake in oven 250 for 2 1/2 hours.
Let cool before painting.

You will need Modpodge, acrylic paint (I used fall colors: yellow, red, orange and brown) and jute string.
Let dry
Add modpodge for a glaze effect.
Let dry
Add string.
The children gave these cute ornaments to their parents for a Thanksgiving gift.
