Baked Christmas Ornaments

HI GUYS- hope your Thanksgiving was yummy and wonderful. MINE SURE WAS, I PIGGED OUT. Now that Turkey day is out of the way, I am finishing up some holiday decorating. Like my front door. The hubs will soon be putting up the lights outside. Today I wanted to do something special with my kids. So I decided to make Baked Christmas Ornaments. I JUST LOVE HOW THEY TURNED OUT. Best part is the memories. My older son said after we decorated them… “This is the best day in November Yet!” totally made the day even better… LOVED IT!


 ROLLING OUT MORE DOUGH! with some hot cocoa and marshmallows of course.

 we used glitter glue and applied the glitter glue to the ornaments with our fingers. Keep a damp paper towel with ya.


 I hung some on my garland around my front door. I am so in love! the others went on my Christmas tree.

 The wreath you see I made last year. My mom made the bow for me.

Directions/ Ingredients for the ornaments!

Mix together 2 cups of Flour, 1 cup of salt, 2 tbsp. Vegetable Oil. Then slowly add 3/4-1 cup of water and stir until you get a nice clay.

Add a little flour as you knead the dough. You want it sticky but not to sticky.

Flour your surface and rolling pin. Roll out dough to about 3/4 of an inch, you don’t want it to thick it will crack while baking. Cut out shapes and place on un-greased cookie sheet. Use a kabob skewer (that is what I used) or a tooth pick to create wholes in the ornaments.

Bake at 250 for 1 hr. 40  min. Let cool.

THEN thread ribbon of your choice through the wholes and decorate. My kids and I decorated ours with Glitter Glue in Red, Gold, and White. Simple but lovely.

I am linking up with Tatertots and Jellow for the Weekend Wrap Up Party HERE.

  3. Your ornies turned out fabulous! I love how you used them to decorate your garland on your door. It looks great! Thanks for sharing your recipe. The one I use doesn’t call for the oil and my ornies almost always crack and don’t come out very smooth. Now I know what to do!! Enjoy your Sunday!

  4. Thank you so much for posting this. My Mom did these with me as a kid and I was looking for instructions so I could do it with my kids. Can’t wait to try them out.

    1. It was so many years ago, but I would say 10-12. I really can’t remember but it wasn’t even 20. So you will be very busy. Thanks, jen
