If you’re wanting to get crafty and make your own Christmas tree decorations (that also look *really* cute, if we don’t say so ourselves), then look no further.⁠
We took to the kitchen to rustle up some easy #zerowaste salt-dough cookie ornaments for our first @masonfifth Christmas tree. They were a no waste, no-fuss way to use up some kitchen cupboard essentials, and have some fun whilst doing so! Better yet, we’ll have them for the many more @masonfifth trees to come… 🌙 🌒⁠

Save this post to make your own!⁠

✨What’s in it? ✨⁠

• 4 cups all-purpose flour⁠
• 1 cup table salt⁠
• 1.5 cups warm water⁠

To make your decorations, simply…⁠

1. Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and give them a good stir. Then, slowly add in the warm water while stirring. Keep stirring until all the water has been added.⁠
2 Knead. Use your hands to knead the mixture into a dough. Keep kneading until it’s smooth and pliable.⁠
3. Roll. Place a piece of parchment paper on a flat surface and roll out your dough until ⅛ inch thick – go for a thinner dough so they don’t break easily.⁠
4. Shape. Use cookie cutters to cut out the shapes you want – keep them on the parchment paper! Peel away excess dough leaving behind the shapes on the parchment. You can press onto them with different objects for a textured effect.⁠
5. Poke holes. Using a drinking straw, poke a hole in the top of each ornament for a ribbon or string to hand from.⁠
Place in the oven for 1 hour at 140oC – keep an eye on them. When they are done, they’ll feel hard.⁠
6 Let the ornaments cool down before you string them up and hang on your tree.⁠

Enjoy and happy baking!🎄✨⁠
