Cinnamon Salt Dough Ornaments

Ingredients

1 cup flour

1/2 cup salt

1/2 cup cinnamon

3/4 cup very hot water

Blend the dry ingredients and then add water.  Mix well.  Roll out and cut with any cookie cutters you choose. Be sure to cut a hole for hanging. I cut mine with a straw.  Makes about 18 small ornaments. You don’t need to bake these, however, air drying can take several days especially if, like me, you’ve made them thicker. I ended up pre-heating my oven to about 200 and put the tray of ornaments inside. I then immediately turned off the oven and I left the tray of ornaments there for several hours while the oven cooled. The ornaments will dry a light color but you can bring back the dark color by coating them with a clear coat.  I used a can of Rustoleum spray gloss enamel clear coat.  Polyurethane would work too.

I used my gingerbread boy cutter.  I considered adding details with fabric paint but these were already way too cute as they were.  I added a narrow ribbon around the neck and that was enough for me.
