Salt dough is one of those amazing things that you make as a child and then forget about in adulthood. Well I came across a recipe in one of my little sisters many craft books and i set about making stuff for christmas.
Mix 300g plain flour with 300g salt, add 200ml of water and a teaspoon of oil. To harden the creations bake the dough in an oven at about gas mark 4/180' for 20 mins. voila cheap decorations. I made penguins and unicorns to hang on the tree, finishing them off once cool with some acrylic paint and glitter.
