food coloring (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Pour boiling water in a bowl and add salt. Add remaining ingredients. Knead dough to desired consistency for crafting. If coloring dough with food coloring, work it uniformly into the dough as you knead the craft dough. Keep salt dough wrapped in plastic when not in use. Bake at 300 for 45 to 60 minutes. Ornaments will puff a little when baked.

To make ornaments, pinch off bits of dough and form shapes. Such as bears, Christmas trees, gingerbread people and snowmen or roll out the dough and use cookie cutters.

To make hair, push a piece of dough through a garlic press. Completed ornaments may be painted, or brush with beaten egg and water mixture prior to baking for a darkened, shiny appearance. On the back of the ornament, write the name and the year. This salt dough recipe works well for baking handprint keepsakes.
