2 cups white flour
1 cup salt
2 tbs vegetable oil
3/4 - 1 cup of water
DirectionsMix together flour, salt, and vegetable oil.
gradually add water and stir until you get a playdough like consistency.
Shape into eggs or leaves, or use festive cookie cutters in the the shape of bunnies, chickens, Australian native animals or birds. Poke holes at the top of each ornament with a toothpick to thread string through.
Bake at 12o˚ C oven for 1 hour (if they are thick leave longer).
Let cool, then paint and decorate.
Because I'm not quite prepared for my 19 month old decorating small things with paint, I separated the soft dough and coloured it with food colouring before letting him shape the ornaments.
Place a small branch in a large vase and decorate.
