PS, when you are done, put these somewhere where your husband won't take a nice big bite and chip his tooth. I speak from experience.
Here is the recipe:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup salt
1 cup cold water
Mix together, adding more flour (if too sticky) or water (if too crumbly).
If making ornaments add a hole to the top before baking! Learned this the hard way.
Bake at 200 degrees for an hour or more. With the pumpkins we made it was closer to 2 hours at 200. You can see the dough dry out as it cooks, so this was not as hard to gauge as I thought it might be.
Finally paint and finish with a coat of laquer. I used good old Mod Podge.
|Can you tell which ghost I let Charlotte paint?|
|Matilda thought standing on the table was great!|
|Making footprints for our ghosts!|
|Charlotte loves any craft!|
|She also likes documenting these fun times with her camera:)|
|Leaves, acorns, pumpkins and ghosts!|
I can see us making these all the time! I love that it is an easy way to get footprints and handprints to cherish through the years.
