Salt Dough & Glitter

Feeling very inspired by Kirstie's Homemade Christmas, I took a break from 'Rainbow Room' business, and my little helper and me started work on our salt dough decorations!
I have never made salt dough before....but was pleasantly surprised by how very easy it is.
1/2 cup of salt
1/2 cup of water
1 cup of flour
Mix well and roll into a ball.........then whatever takes your fancy.
We rolled it out and cut out *Jingle Bells* my daughters favourite cutter.
Then we baked them in the oven on 120 C for a while then put them on the stove for a while until they felt hard!
Then the fun bit.... MESS.... paint and glitter and all lovely colours, these will be dry in time for the arrival of our tree tomorrow : )
