These easy to make santa decorations are fun for children (and adults!) to make and are a lovely keepsake for years to come.
They are simple to make and just require 3 items to make the dough itself -
- 1/2 cup of plain flour
- 1/4 cup of water
- 1/2 cup of salt
Just add all of the above into a bowl and mix/knead to form a dough.
Roll out the dough to approx 1.5/2cm thick and then create your hand-prints in the dough!
Cut around the handprints leaving a small border and don't forget to poke a hole into the top of your decorations (around 2cm from the top) so that you can hang it up!.
Now place onto greaseproof paper and place into the oven on the lowest setting for your oven or around 100C for 3-4 hours and then leave to cool.
Once cooled you can decorate your hand prints as you please! Here are ours....
You can also them in PVA glue to set them and keep them lasting longer and give them the shiney finish, You could also use a lacquer spray or varnish to do this.
